TGIF - Time for Cocktails

I'm all about helping to support the community, and every year when the girl scouts sell their cookies, I buy boxes of them.  Yes, I keep a gluten-free kitchen, but really it's just Whirling Dervish who's on a gluten-free diet.  So there are several months of the year when I might have girl scout cookies stashed in my bedroom closet.  Which ones?  The quintessential ones of course - the Thin Mints.  Little bites of chocolate and mint perfection.

So what does this have to do with cocktails?  Well, sometimes you want that girl scout cookie fix and your closet is empty, and it's been a long day, or even a long week.  Enter the Naughty Girl Scout.

She's not real pretty to look at, but boy is she ever yummy.  These are so yummy in fact, that you won't have any idea how many you've had until you go to stand up.  Did I mention that these are straight liquor?

Here's the recipe.  Shake 1 oz Kahlua, 1 oz Vodka, and 1 oz Irish Cream with some ice.  Pour over crushed ice in a glass.

Pour 1 oz of Creme de Menthe down the middle of the glass.  I was a little messy with this step(tried to snap a pic while pouring,) but even being messy, you'll still get that terrific layering.  These are deadly at a bachelorette party and terrific around a firepit(what could be better than scouts around a firepit.)  If you were counting that's 4 oz of liquor.  Feel free to divvy these up between 2 smaller cordial glasses.

Thanks for popping in and drinking with me.  Hope you all have a terrific weekend.  I'm linking this to Just A Girl's Show and Share Day, and Centsational Girl's Picnic & Barbecue Ideas Party.
