Be prepared

3 Mar


Or is that a Boy Scout saying?

Cause these are Girl drinks.

I never joined any sort of Scouts, even the delectable sounding Brownies.

Because despite what I previously said in the title of an earlier entry, I’m not a joiner. Particularly if joining involved wearing a uniform.

Either way I am preparing you for a week and a half of no new gruel recipes by leaving you not one but two recipes to console yourself. I will be back a week from Monday with….WAFFLE WEEK! I’ll be waffling all sorts of non-waffle items so brace yourselves.

So, this week’s recipes.
These are bad, bad cookies.

Actually they are not cookies, but they are called Girl Scouts and they are bad.

As in naughty.

As in adult.

Downright dirty.

Well one is, the other one is the other is frozen.

Scout-y nonetheless.

Scouts spend their time perfecting Mrs. Robinson-style shots of themselves in mirrors while wearing pleather pants and sipping alcoholic shakes, right?


I outta start my own urban scout group. Nature hikes in Griffith at midnight.

Drink one:
Frozen Girl Scout(adapted from the 8500+ Drink and Cocktail recipes Free app)
Splash if chocolate almond milk(more it less depending on preferred thickness)
1 1/2 oz. green creme de menthe
1 c. Chocolate ice cream
Blendy blend blend. Sip and prepare thyself for…well in my case that Sunday night, Monday. Which I did by discarding most of the drink because although this drink was second to heaven I don’t drink alone and Monday was a Dippity doodah multiple audition day. But next time I have guests I will be recreating it again cause it was AMAZING.

As for the dirty gal. The Dirty Girl Scout was particularly dirty when I shaking it and the top flew off my shaker.

When a Scout’s top flies off…

Good thing it was tasty. Strong hit of the Kahlua and Bailey’s. I think the creme de menthe provides mainly color because it did nit taste terribly mint-y so don’t shy away if you are not into mint.

It matched one of my kitchen walls. Good thing when when the top came off. And it sprayed my kitchen.


Sorry, not you.

That was me responding to the innuendos in my mind.

FYI dictionary dot com says the plural of innuendo can be spelled with or without an e.

There, my mind is cleansed.

Dirty Girl Scout(from the iPhone Mixology App)
1 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream
1 tsp. Green Creme de Menthe
1 oz. Kahlua
1 oz. Vodka
Shake over ice and strain. The recipe says to garnish with an orange slice but I was not so very prepared for that…

    The “dirty girl scout” sounds lethal. However, I like kahlua so you’ll need to mix a patch if I ever get to visit LA. It will be exciting, LA I mean.

      Thanks Ameena! I’ve deduced that booze and sleep deprivation are my keys to good blog content:)
