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.

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 leader of troop #7893, in Long Beach's Belmont Shore, 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 Girl Scout cookie wine pairings. You would not want to drink a fine Cabernet with, say, Trefoils, 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 local source.

I confess that I will lower my standards for wine pairings if only a Pinot Noir is available for a Do-Si-Do......

I can tell you live in LA County... Orange County has different cookie names and some different cookie options =)

Not really appropriate.....I was a scout, this is a bit offensive
