"Cookie season" is in full swing! And we all know and love the most popular Girl Scout cookie, right? ~ the famous Thin Mints.  With their chocolate covered minty crispy wafer, they're hard to resist, for sure.  The flavors's so hard to resist in fact, I even made my own Christmas homemade Thin Mints this past Christmas.

But what if you don't want to enjoy a Thin Mint cookie  at all?  What if you'd just like to enjoy those favorite flavors of Thin Mints in a different way?  Like in a fun cocktail form, perhaps.  Well, you can.

That's right, I've got a different way to enjoy your favorite Girl Scout cookie ... the Thin Mint cocktail.

Chocolate makes me happy.  Triple chocolate makes me even happier.  And triple chocolate in cookie form? ... I'm in cookie heaven.

Who remembers the ice cream truck that used to roll through your neighborhood when you were a kid?  I sure do!

On warm summer nights, we'd eagerly wait in anticipation to hear the sound of its playful music and sing-songy bell drifting through the neighborhood to let us know the ice cream truck was on its way to our street.  Mom or Dad would hand my brother and me a dollar bill, and we'd run out into the yard to await the truck's arrival ... all the while thinking about what we wanted to get that night.

Would it be an Italian ice?  Or a red, white, and blue firecracker pop?

Or the ever-favorite Orange Creamsicle?

And in the case of this Strawberry Butter?

Back around Christmas time, I shared the Santa's Hat Shirley Temple I created for our Little Miss H. as a special Christmas drink.  I came up with the idea one day when I was making Santa's Hat Christmas cocktails for my husband and myself, and didn't want our 7-year-old Miss H. to feel left out of the special drink fun.  She likes to feel involved in the fun, and as a Mom, I try my best to make that happen.

But I got to thinking the other day, perhaps I should also share the basic, classic Shirley Temple drink recipe that Miss H. likes to enjoy all year-round?

I'm going to date myself here, but in high school one of my absolute favorite movies was "Pretty In Pink."  I mean, what teenage girl of the '80s could resist those iconic girl-meets-boy brat-pack love stories?  Especially when a prom and puffy pink prom dresses were involved!

To this day ... some 30 years later ... I'm hard-pressed to see something all dressed up in pink without thinking of the movie's theme song of the same name.  Or of Duckie's sweet silliness.
