Pitu Piturinha Shot Liqueur Miniature
Pitu Piturinha Shot liqueur miniatures are based on the traditional Brazilian spirit, Pitu. This particular liqueur is manufactured by a Brazilian-led company named, Pitu. Traditionally taken neat as a shot, it is also used as a key ingredient in the preparation of mixed drinks which also have Brazilian origins: Batida and Caipirinha.
As for Pitu, the brand, it was the River Pitu and the Pitu that refers to the prawn that inhabits the river that inspired its foundation. River Pitu was near the original location of the distillery. This is the reason why the label on this drink shows the image of a prawn.
Pitu Piturnha is created using distillate derived from sugar cane that has been distilled in column stills made of copper. The resulting spirit is then allowed to age in French oak casks for a few weeks.
Piturinha Liqueur Miniatures are served in 2cl bottles ready to be served and drank straight from the bottle. Alternatively, you can use this to put together traditional Brazilian mixers. It will greatly complement a Brazilian or Latin-inspired function. Rather than toasting with a tall glass of wine, consider making a toast with miniature bottles of this spirit.
