A cream flavor's preparation starts with approximately one half gallon simple syrup. Next add four ounces of the flavor concen¬trate desired. While stirring, add two 13 fluid ounce cans of evaporated milk. Fill with additional simple syrup to prepare one gallon.
The flavor concentrate and simple syrup is mixed before the evaporated milk is added to avoid direct contact of the milk and flavor concentrate. This direct contact sometimes complicates the blending process.
