in the cool of the evening

You can simply enjoy yourself shopping, eating, and strolling with your friends in the cool of the evening.


Is it the same to say "in the cool evening" instead of "in the cool of the evening?" If not, what are their differeces? Thanks.

    Thank you ... we use the phrase to describe a condition at a particular time:
    In the cool of the evening.
    In the heat of the day.
    In the warmth of the moment.
