With Girl Scout Season upon us, it's only right to look for all the ways you can incorporate those delicious, for-a-good-cause cookies in all areas of life — especially in your cocktails. 

Colonial Wines & Spirits is gearing up for their third annual Girl Scout cookie and wine pairing event at their store on Markham on Wednesday, March 14, from 4-7 p.m. This popular event is part of Girl Scout Cookie Restaurant Week (more on that here).

Patrons 21 and older are invited to taste the cookies paired perfectly with wines available at Colonial. The event is free and representatives from Girl Scouts will be on deck to get people squared away with cookie orders. 

But you don't have to wait until Wednesday to make your own boozy cookie concoction. Our friends at Colonial shared this easy Thin Mint Martini recipe below.

Cheers!
