Drunken Girl Scout

Let’s start off 2012 with this: Drunken Girl Scout is to me as the the Big Mac is to McDonald’s. While sadly I don’t have a jingle to coincide, Drunken Girl Scout is my go-to flavor. I’ve been making this flavor for about two years which in my book means I have earned my booze badge. I wish I still had my Girl Scout sash because I’m curious what I accomplished back in ’91. I know for a fact it wasn’t starting a fire or braiding hair (is that even an option?). I digress. Here’s how I accomplished “booze badge”:

I wanted to start the year off with a flavor that warms the tummy and Baileys Irish Cream does just that. Something about its thick consistency blankets your innards and sets up a nice winter picnic in the belly. It’s a heavier libation so it’s great for ice cream because it naturally thickens the base and let’s not forget that booze doesn’t freeze so it keeps the consistency creamy.

I never really noticed the pristine landscape on the label until I took this picture. Kind of reminds of a mashup of an Irish Spring graphic and Duck Hunt. (mmm the smell of Irish Spring…yes please!)

Let’s digress from the irish lake/Duck Hunt imagery for a sec and let’s dive into the badge at hand: ice cream.

Drunken Girl Scout Troop: 0214

I’m not saying this troop is the one you want to be stranded with in the woods with,  but I know they would be fun to play Catch Phrase and Jenga with.
