You Need Our Thin Mint Milkshake in Your Life this Winter

It’s no surprise that Thin Mints are the No.1–selling variety of Girl Scout cookie—they’re so delicious, it’s medically impossible to eat just one. (Sidebar: Samoas and Do-si-dos are Nos. 2 & 3 on that best-selling list—and somehow, Trefoils don’t clock in till the 5th spot. Which is crazy. But back to our main topic.) Thin Mints are so popular around Supercall World HQ that someone came up with the genius idea to create an adult-beverage riff on the fabled, chocolate-dipped mint wafer. And now, you can make the incredibly tasty result at home. You'll need vodka, ice cream, dark chocolate, deliciously minty, complex Fernet Branca Menta, and a few other things. See here:
