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?
