Sometimes a girl just gets so cranky and angst-ridden, she needs an emergency administration of both chocolate and alcohol. If you don't have Kahlua and ice cream , you will have to rummage through the cupboard and just make do. If you're lucky, you may hit upon an amazing combo.

This is a drink I am dubbing The Girl Scout. It will bring you great comfort when the hormones are raging. Men, you can also enjoy this beverage, although I wouldn't recommend drinking it in front of the guys. Experience the magic of reverting back to childhood, while simultaneously getting hammered.

Stir together. Keep the cat away from it.* Relax and unclench your fists.

*No cats actually drank any alcohol in the making of this blog. Don't get your cat stoned either. It's very dangerous and so, so wrong.
