We’re entering that time of year when we crave cold things to try to combat the rising temperatures. Sometimes it’s ice cream, sometimes it’s a cocktail and sometimes it’s both. With ice cream, a refreshing mint flavor and more, this Thin Mint Cocktail from Delicious Dessert Cocktails is the perfect concoction to help you beat the heat this summer. As if it couldn’t get any better, it’s super simple to make. Happy Thin Mint Thursday (because that’s a thing…right?) and bottoms up!
