Cucumber Sorbet

Years ago, a friend took my husband and me to a fancy restaurant in our area. Between courses, the waiter gave us cucumber sorbet. My husband asked what it was and the waiter told him that it was to cleanse his palate. My husband answered back he used pallets to stack bricks on. 😂 Lol! (We owned a landscape company.)

    Cucumbers are always so refreshing especially on hot summer days. I love cocktails made with cucumber in the summer and I am sure this sorbet would be just as refreshing and cooling.
