Being in a new city, it is very important to find a nice ice cream parlor. Truth.
Dolcezza Gelato is an ice cream shop chain in DC and Maryland. I have only been there once, but I can see a return trip in the future. While they offer the more traditional flavors, I like that they also have some more adventurous options too.
These were the Cucumber Tarragon Gin and Lemon Opal Basil sorbets. I was very excited by the use of herbs in the sorbets and they were fantastic. While the tarragon flavor was pungent, I could still taste the freshness of the cucumber in the Cucumber Tarragon Gin. The lemon and basil flavors in the Lemon Opal Basil were clear and together they were a great icy treat for the hot DC summer.
