The beautiful city of Savannah is known for many things, from stunning coastal landscapes to intricate architecture, but it’s the rich history that really makes this special city what it is today. To celebrate the past and “cheers” to the future, we’re excited to bring you three history-inspired Savannah cocktails, chosen for the specific ties they have to the great Hostess City of the South.
The Seminal Thin Mint Cocktail
Inspired by the Girl Scouts and their famous Thin Mint cookies you look forward to every year, this mint and chocolate cocktail represents the courage of Juliette Gordon Low who started the Girl Scouts in Savannah in 1912. We raise a glass to her prolific work and the impact she had on young girls over a century ago.

- 1 ounce of crème de menthe
- 1 ounce of fresh cream

The Iconic Box of Chocolates Martini
Who could visit Savannah without thinking of the beloved Forest Gump? Not us! One of the film’s most well known scenes was shot in Chippewa Square right here in downtown Savannah. Next time you visit, you can seek out the sign that marks the landmark for yourself. Live out the mantra, “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.” with this sweet cocktail.
