Thin Mints. Samoas. Do-Si-Dos. You know you can't resist them! It's the season of Girl Scout Cookies, and two Florida resorts are incorporating these famous cookies in to their menus and spas in celebration of the Girl Scout's 100th birthday on Monday.
All of next week is "Girl Scout Week" and the Sandpearl Resort in Clearwater Beach is offering a "Thin Mintini" which includes Kahlua, Absolut Vanilla, Bailey’s Irish Cream Mint and Green Crème de Mint in a glass rimmed with Thin Mints (recipe included below!). In addition, their spa is offering a Thin Mint Pedicure with mint chocolate inspired spa products and delicious Thin Mints as spa snacks.
Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort is also offering Girl Scout-themed desserts with a Thin Mint Chocolate Mousse garnished with the famous dark chocolate covered cookie.
These special desserts and spa treatments will be available starting Monday of next week until the end of March. A portion of the sale proceeds will go to the local Clearwater Beach Girl Scouts organization.
Just in case you already have 10 boxes of these irresistible cookies waiting for you at home, here's a recipe for the Sandpearl Thin Mintini...
Sandpearl Thin Mintini
2 oz Kahlua
1 oz Absolut Vanilla
1 oz Bailey’s Irish Cream Mint
1 oz Green Crème de Mint
Crumble some cookies until powdery enough to stick to the rim of a chilled martini glass. Dip the rim in sugar water then in the crumbled cookies, coating the edges all the way around (or as desired). Then, shake the above ingredients in a martini shaker with ice and strain in a chilled martini glass.
