Wine Pairings for Girl Scout Cookies: Samoas & Port?

You know you're probably going to down a few boxes this cookie season, so let our double expert - a restaurant publicist and scout troop leader - match your favorite type with a compatible vino.

Wine Pairings for Girl Scout Cookies: Samoas & Port?

Back by popular demand we reprise our Girl Scout cookie-and-wine pairings, from Patch contributor Elizabeth Borsting, who knows her way around fine dining.

She's a publicist for restaurants, destinations and national hotel chains and, not coincidentally, a volunteer Girl Scout troop leader who starts each cookie season with a trunk load of easily 50 boxes of cookies. A volunteer pusher, of sorts.

To help unload the last boxes a few years ago, Borsting came up with the cookie-compatible wine list. Click here for the pairings list. You would not want to drink a fine Cabernet with, say, Tefoils, now would you?

And since there's an app for everything, there's also a Girl Scout cookie locator, and details on how to find your Brentwood source.
