It is hot.  We are experiencing temperatures over 100 degrees this week and we aren’t used to it.  I want to do nothing more than sit in a nice cool bath and eat this icy cold cucumber basil sorbet.  Regular ice cream, so rich and heavy seems like a poor choice when temperatures soar.  Utterly refreshing, there is nothing like the clean, fresh taste of cucumber to cool you down.
