Dirty girl scout drink recipe variations
As we said, the dirty girl scout shot drink is a versatile recipe. You can consume it as a shot, a boozy drink filled with ice cream, a martini, or even as a lowball on rocks.
The pleasant combination of cream and mint is always found in the girl scout drink recipe. However, some recipes even use vodka as an additional distilled spirit. If you are a fan of Jagermeister, you can use Jagermeister as alcohol in place of the vodka.
Coffee liqueur is the more popular choice of alcohol in the dirty girl scout shot, due to its flavour concoction with cookies. However, a lot of recipes like to ditch the coffee liquor or Kahlua and use chocolate liquor. The chocolate liquor is more fitting given that it’s a very sweet drink but you can go for whichever you like. Both of these variations produce amazing tasting drinks.
