I'm always on the lookout for ways to flavor my beverages. Torani Syrup is one of the best options out there. They have so many different flavors that you will definitely find the one you want. I love to add some Vanilla to my coke! It doesn require much and tastes delicious! Another great way to use it is in coffee. Add a little Pumpkin to your latte and its amazing!
Torani is available online at www.torani.com or at many local retailers.
A little information about Torani:

The Sugar Free flavors have no calories and are sweetened with Splenda. Now, Torani flavored syrups are widely available at retail so you can easily create authentic coffeehouse quality drinks at home.
Now I'll leave you with a unique way I use Torani. It's a jello shot recipe!!
1 Large Cherry Jello package
2 cups boiling water
¾ cups Torani Crème de Cacao
¼ cup vodka
1 cup White Rum
1 jar maraschino cherries
Jello Shot containers (I use 2 oz plastic soufflé cups)
24 hours before preparing(If you’re short on time then you can skip this step)
Strain the cherries leaving about ¼ of the juice in the jar. Fill the jar with white rum. Place cherries in refrigerator overnight.
Preparing Jello Shots at least 3-4 hours before servingStrain the Maraschino cherries and rum mixture into a measuring cup/bowl. Add rum to the mixture until it measures 1 cup.
Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Remove from heat and add jello. Mix until jello is dissolved. Stir in the 1 cup of rum that you measured out, ¼ cup of vodka and ¾ cups of Torani Crème de Cacao.
Pour mixture into jello shot containers. Fill the containers about ¾ of the way. Place 1 cherry in the middle of each jello shot.
Refrigerate jello shots until they are firm.
Immediately before serving pour a thin layer of Magic Shell on each jello shot. Put them in the freezer for about 20-30 seconds OR until Magic Shell is hard. Put a small amount of whipped cream on each one and serve!
