is Torani Hazelnut syrup a good substitute in a Mai Tai?
Well, if its all you can get it you can make it work.
Most of the Torani stuff is overly sweet in my opinion. And overall I find the flavors to be a bit dull.
I think if you add a wee bit more lime to offset the sweet of the Torani you should wind up with a decent Mai Tai. And maybe use a a drier triple-sec like Cointreau maybe?
Basically, you tell us. Does the Hazelnut work in your Mai Tai? Does the Torani make it sweeter? Does the hazelnut make a difference with your rums?
