Sometimes it’s just not enough to drink milk with your cookies. Maybe you backed into a tree or forgot to pick up your kid from soccer practice. Maybe your dog ate your running shoes, or your husband left his wadded up Kleenex in the pocket of the jeans you were washing.

For those days, we thank God for grapes and Girl Scouts, and we indulge not only our sweet tooth, but  also our privilege as people over 21 — and break out a stemmed glassful of fruity goodness with our cookies. Sound like heaven? Take a look at the Texas Hill Country version of wine pairings and Girl Scout cookies.
