I know it’s an article about a milkshake, but sorry, no boys will be brought to your yard: this recipe’s all about the girl (scouts). This milkshake combines the delightful caramel-chocolate-coconut flavor of a Samoa cookie with the richness of a shot of dark rum. Perfect for entertaining yourself during those long months between Girl Scout cookie sales.
