What to serve with Dirty Girl Scout Thin Mint Shot

Consider pairing your shot with some decadent chocolate-covered strawberries. Or even some mini desserts like Godiva whoopie pies, or mini cheesecakes in a jar would compliment the shot well.

Can I make a non-alcoholic version of the Dirty Thin Mint shot?

You can swap the alcohol out with chocolate milk instead of the alcohol. Or you can add milk and then a little chocolate syrup. Stir well or shake the same.

What kind of glass should I use for serving Dirty Thin Mint shots?

These are served in a shot glass most generally. You can use any smaller glass to create a shot. For the strong flavor you will find it tastes best in smaller doses than sipping on it as a full-on cocktail.

Dust with cocoa powder, chocolate shavings, crumbled cookies, or even mint leaves. Feel free to garnish any way you want or leave it plain.

Dirty Girl Scout Shot is a Girl Scout themed shot. It is a creamy and sweet minty shot that is bursting with flavor. If you are a Girl Scout lover, you ahve to try this mint shot.


  • 4 Ounces (113 ⅖ g) Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • 4 Ounces (113 ⅖ g) Vodka
  • 4 Ounces (113 ⅖ g) Creme de Menthe
  • Mint Chocolate Cookies or Fresh Mint optional garnish


  • In a cocktail shaker you will add all ingredients to the shaker.
  • Shake well to make sure it is fully mixed and chill.
  • Strain and pour into the shot glasses.
  • Garnish with a mint cookie or fresh mint leaves. Serve right away.


It’s best to drink Dirty Thin Mint shots quickly as they can settle if left sitting for too long. While they are fantastic right after mixing, they still taste amazing even if they’ve settled a bit.
The initial flavor of the shot resembles a robust eggnog, followed swiftly by the perfect combination of chocolate and mint. It’s a delightful and indulgent shot.
Fresh mint can be added for visual appeal, but it doesn’t significantly impact the taste. Including a chocolate mint cookie as a snack alongside the shot adds a fun matching element.
If you prefer, you can substitute Bailey’s with Kahlua, but keep in mind that the shot’s color will be more brownish rather than green due to the difference in colors between the two liqueurs.
While you can add ice to the shaker, I recommend chilling the ingredients beforehand to avoid dilution and minimize frothing of the shot. This ensures a more concentrated and smoother drinking experience.
