The Alembic's Girl Scout cookie and cocktail pairings
Who doesn’t have a soft spot for Girl Scout cookies? The Alembic is capitalizing on our collective weakness for the treats by offering a limited run of cookie-and-cocktail pairings. For only a few short weeks, bartenders will be slinging special drinks, such as a Girl from Ipanema (a cachaça and sherry combo) with Samoas.
Each cocktail comes with two cookies, so be sure to get over there fast while the sweets last. But first, check out a couple of our favorite cookie-cocktail combos--with recipes so you can re-create the drinks at home.
"Some Like It Hot"
The classic, crispy Thin Mint gets a spicy kick when paired with this hot tequila-based drink using coffee liqueur, chocolate bitters and a dash of chile.
"Girl from Ipanema"
Samoas--a tastebud-tickling combo of caramel, toasted coconut and chocolate--call for an exotic drink. Here, they're paired with a tangy concoction of Brazilian cachaça and medium-dry sherry.
