Default Torani syrups etc. etc.

Admittedly I am not what most would call a "cocktail" man. I enjoy various cocktails from time to time but it isn't my expertise or a daily ritual. In the last 2-3 years I've become more receptive to cocktails as well as making them myself - much of that comes from discovering better ingredients more readily available and the notion that cocktails don't have to be a complete attempt at masking the alcohol they involve. I happen to enjoy the liquors I partake in - so I would like to "taste" them - rather than bury them.

That said, we've had our fair share of mentions about fresh ingredients and keeping things as right out of the ground as possible - I was wondering for Ed and other cocktail hawks here, is there a place for Torani syrups and that sort of stuff in your cocktail construction?

I don't use the stuff but this question came to me last night I was at Cost Plus W.M. picking up worldly things and saw some syrups that sounded (by name) like they might be complimentary towards tropical cocktails. Does anyone use this stuff? I typically make my own bar syrups - water, raw sugars, and some times when way out on a project I add peels, leaves, or other fresh, raw infusionary ingredients during the heating process.

(Hope this was the right portion of the discussion board to post this - it seems like the accessories area).

I've used Torani's orgeat and pomegranate syrups in my tropical/tiki cocktails with good results. Plenty of cocktail snobs will steer you away from Torani but when the "better" brands are unavailable, I know from experience that at least some of their syrups will work just fine.

Also note that Torani syrups are made with cane sugar, not HFCS. Always a good thing IMO.
