9 Girl Scout Cookie Cocktail Recipes That Will Make You Love Adulting
Girl Scouts Cookies might be some of the best things humans have ever created. And now that you are (sort of) a real life grown-up, it is time to indulge in Girl Scout Cookie cocktails. These include boozy drinks that have actual Girl Scout Cookies in them, and cocktails inspired by them. Basically, it is one of the best ways to honor these mouthwatering sweets.
By themselves, Girl Scout Cookies have a crazy loyal following. We can thank the exclusive “limited edition” nature for that. After all, these treats are only available during Girl Scout Cookie season in early February. But since the love is so real, other companies have launched products inspired by these wonderful treats. I mean, Nesquick Girl Scout Cookie-flavored milk, Girl Scout Cookie cereal, and Girl Scout Cookie baking mixes all exist. Win.
It only makes sense to add delicious cocktail recipes to the list. The best part? You can learn how to order Girl Scout Cookies even if you do not know a Girl Scout. There is even a Girl Scout Cookie locator app that will help you out. Once you stock up on a pantry full of treats (and if you're over 21!), make one (or all) of these crazy good drinks. Homemade happy hour has never looked so good.
