Wine & Girl Scout Cookies

February 27th – March 1st is National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, and we’re celebrating by pairing some of our favorite cookies with some of our favorite wines!

Thin Mints

Girl Scouts

My Girl Scouts

There are two types of Thin Mints made today, but both combine a wafer, chocolate, and peppermint flavoring. To truly experience the mint & chocolate combination, however, don’t reach for the milk – try a Syrah instead.

Samoas (Caramel deLites)

Banyuls is a red dessert wine from Southwestern France, which pairs amazingly with the dark chocolate stripes on Samoas. For a Plan B, pick up a Port.

Tagalongs (Peanut Butter Patties)

You’re going to see a trend here: when the cookie has chocolate, grab a bottle of red wine. Tagalongs are no different – find a fruity red wine such as Beaujolais or Zinfandel.

Trefoils (Shortbread)

Light and refreshing, a Trefoil shortbread should be paired with Pinot Noir or even Sparkling wine if the mood is right.

Lemonades

When snacking on these shortbread cookies with lemon-flavored icing, grab a buttery Chardonnay like the 2009 Cambria Chardonnay from Uncorked Ventures.

Thanks-A-Lot

My personal favorite: shortbread dipped in rich fudge. It’s a tough one, as it combines the light shortbread with the chocolatey fudge, but I’ll be enjoying mine with a Pinot Noir from Gold Medal Wine Club.

Chocolate Chip Shortbread

There is a lot of disagreement about what types of wine pair best with chocolate chip cookies in general. This one comes down to a matter of personal preference on white or red. You could either go with a dark Port or a sparkling white.

Savannah Smiles

These are a lemon-based cookie similar to the Lemonades but covered with powered sugar. Try a Pinot Grigio/Gris.

Cranberry Citrus Crisps

Both sweet and tangy because of the cranberry, a good match for these would be a Viognier or the more popular Riesling.

Remember, it’s not just fruit, cheese and crackers that can be included in a wine tasting. We reviewed Cookies & Corks and found the experience to be delightful! Try it yourself with your Girl Scout cookies and favorite wine club shipment!
