Cooldown for Sweltering Summer Days

When the heat makes anything beyond a lime popsicle frozen fruit bar (made with real fruit! has vitamin C!) for dinner unlikely, here’s something to cool things down a bit: In a short glass, pour about 2 oz of basil-ginger-infused vodka over 2 -3 ice cubes. Add the juice of half a lime, and top off the glass with lime seltzer water. Add just a bit of mint simple syrup and stir. Drink before the ice cubes melt.

You may even feel cooled off enough to make a small tuna salad and not mind when the cat starts brushing up against your legs hoping for some scraps of fish.
