It is still dreadfully cold here in Indy, but once every year, something delicious comes around to help ease our winter blues… GIRL SCOUT COOKIE time! WOO HOO!!
Thanks to this wine review website that is aimed to help wine-lovers choose their perfect wine club, I have professional suggestions for the perfect wine pairings with your favorite Girl Scout cookies! I also added a couple of my own recommendations, as I am known to love a glass (or 2…or 4…okay the whole bottle!) of wine. So ditch the milk and warm up with one of these yummy pairings.
Thin Mints – The most popular Girl Scout cookie of all time pairs perfectly with Syrah AKA Shiraz. This often full-bodied wine compliments the mint and chocolate combo found in Thin Mints.
Samoas – My favorite Girl Scout cookie because I love coconut and caramel! Banylus, a sweet, French dessert wine pairs nicely with the dark chocolate stripe found on Samoas. Port wine will also do the trick.
Tagalongs – A fruity, red wine like Beaujolais always pairs perfectly with chocolate!
Trefoils – These light and crisp cookies need a light and crisp wine like Pinot Noir. A sparkling wine, like our Air-Tan owner’s favorite wine, prosecco, also makes a great mate.
Savannah Smiles & Lemonades– These crisp, zesty, lemon cookies are perfectly compliments by a crisp Chardonnay or a citrusy pinot grigio.
Thanks-a-Lots – These fudge-dipped shortbread cookies also go nicely with a red wine like pinot noir. Bottom line is chocolate always goes with red wine.
Cranberry Citrus Crisps – These fruity cookies pair wonderfully with a sweet, white dessert wine like reisling.
