Fail: The Dirty Girl Scout

Name: The Pin Junkie

My Blog:

Original Inspiration:


What I Did: I followed the recipe except I bought the wrong ingredient. I went ahead and made the cocktail with green creme de menthe instead of white creme de menthe. It looked and tasted terrible.

Next Time I Will: I would read the label more closely at the store and buy the right ingredients! (in this case white creme de minthe)

    Next time, look up the Grasshopper Martini. It is much better! Here’s how I make mine:

    1.5 oz. Vodka
    Half oz. of Green Creme de Mint
    1 oz. Chocolate Liqueur
    Splash of milk or half ‘n half

    Shake and strain into a martini glass. You can also line the glass with swirls of chocolate syrup.
    This tastes much more like a Thin Mint. Good luck!

    I dunno, I’ve only ever had the Dirty Girl Scout with green creme de minthe – and I still love it! Tastes like a Thin Mint 🙂

    Actually the recipe I have seen for this is wrong. You should be using green creme de menthe. How else would the drink get its coloring? Also, this drink is meant to be a shot, not a cocktail. And green creme de menthe and white creme de menthe have the same flavor, so that didn’t mess up the taste.

    try a girl scout shot instead :
    1 part vodka
    1 part coffee liqueur (Kahlua or similar)
    1 part irish cream wiskey (Baileys or similar)

    shake with ice
    pour into shot glasses. Once in the shot glasses float the smallest amount of peppermint schnapps over the top (or just pour it in if people will be taking the shot two seconds later)

    Agree with Kat, this is a shot, not a drink. Also, the recipe I like has Rumple Minze instead of vodka. I had it for the first time at TGI Fridays the other night, VERY delicious.

    My version of a dirty girl scout is simple and totally different than this.
    1.5 oz peppermint schnapps
    8 oz choclate milk

    Totally delicious – tastes just like a thin mint cookie! 🙂

    I made this all the time as a bartender, we always used the green crème de menthe, however we did not use any vodka and people loved them.
