Merit Badge

It's Girl Scout Cookie time!
By now you are bound to have been accosted by one of the adorable sash/vest wearing little urchins.  And if you haven't given up 4 bucks for one of their over-priced boxes of baked goodness, then stop reading my blog right now.
Not because this drink involves same cookies; but because you have no soul.

I first considered naming this drink The Frozen Grasshopper.  Why?  Because Keebler™ Grasshoppers are the same thing as Girl Scout Thin Mints.  Now, before anyone gets all hysterical like some of the other crazies on the internet that gnash their teeth and scream like banshees "GAHH!!!  Evil corporation is ripping off the Girl Scouts!!!!11!!!", there's one very important point that is missing here:

Little Brownie Bakers (aka Girl Scout Cookies) is a division of the Keebler Company.

What, you mean that internet morons sometimes tee off with emotional rants on issues without any type of due diligence or fact-checking?

Anyway, I didn't name it "grasshopper" because those cocktails typically include Creme de Menthe.  And really (besides me) who keeps a bottle of Creme de Menthe at home?  Hence why I called it...


1.5 oz          Kahlua
.5 oz            Vodka
2 scoops     Vanilla Ice Cream
4 cookies    Girl Scout Thin Mints***

Add all ingredients to a blender 
Blend until smooth

***If you don't have any in your stash, then shoot me an email.  I have a connection, man.
