Simple Concepts:  Prior to guests arriving, place vodka in the freezer. It’s virtually impossible to freeze. To make brown sugar syrup, add equal parts sugar and water. Allow to cook until sugar has completely dissolved. Once cool, place in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to a week. And as always, Simple Conceptions uses organic ingredients. For quality assurance and optimal results, Chef Jean Paul suggests following the recipes as written using the products mentioned.
