Does eating a Girl Scout cookie make you think, “I wish this were available as a cocktail?” No matter the answer, I promise you will be delighted with the Thin Mint Cocktail that I made with Savvy Housekeeping. It has all the satisfying chocolate and minty goodness of Thin Mints with the delightful addition of booze.
This cocktail hits the sweet spot, so to speak. It’s creamy without being too heavy. Fresh mint adds a pop to the chocolate that makes the drink perky and fun.
Though no cookies were harmed in the making of this cocktail, we were happy to buy some Thin Mints from a local Girl Scout for inspiration. Very important business-related snack purchase!
Thin Mint Cocktail
1 ounce vodka
1 1/2 ounce Baileys Irish Cream
2 sprigs fresh mint
1 tablespoon chocolate syrup (plus some for garnish)
Muddle the mint and vodka in a cocktail shaker, then add Baileys and a tablespoon chocolate syrup. Shake with ice and taste. Add more chocolate, if desired! Shake and strain into chilled cocktail glass (with optional chocolate syrup garnish).
