Pairing Girl Scout cookies with booze is a thing now
- Many of my Philadelphia food friends have been linking to a Girl Scout cookie/beer pairing that Swathmore, P.A.’s 320 Market Café has available right now. Four Girl Scout cookies paired with a flight of four beers will run you $12, but when you’re done, you’ll know which beer tastes best with a Thin Mint.
- Flying Dog Ales out of Maryland has recommendations for pairing its beers with various Girl Scout cookies. If you can’t get these specific beers in your area, you could certainly use it as a guide to pairing Girl Scout cookies with craft beer from a local brewery in your region.
- The Wine Club Reviews website has a guide to pairing Girl Scout cookies with wine. Port with the caramel-y Samoas or sparkling wine with the shortbread Trefoils are just two of the general recommendations made. I’ve seen this particular webpage linked to more times than I can count by many of my wine-loving female friends on Facebook.
- For specific wines to drink with Girl Scout cookies, you can turn to Huffington Post. They have a wine director from a Michelin-starred restaurant recommending a 2006 Renwood Grandmere Zinfandel with Dulce De Leche cookies plus several other wine/cookie recommendations.
