Credit is given to the duke of Plessis-Praslin (ambassador of King Louis XIII) for inventing the praline in the 17th century. Pralines encompass a variety of confections made of different sugar and nuts, depending on the country. In the U.S., pralines are usually made with pecans and most often associated with New Orleans and other cities in the South. Inspired from an authentic New Orleans recipe, Monin Praline Syrup is an accurate flavor replication of the New Orleans praline confection and can be used to impart its wonderful taste into a wide variety of beverages. Made with select ingredients and pure cane sugar, Monin Praline Flavored Syrup is a highly concentrated, authentic flavoring offering exceptional versatility for creating specialty beverages.
