Utensils Tips

Aging, Straining, filtering, and Drinking Your Pitanga Liqueur

Shake well and store away from sunlight in a cool and dry place for a minimum of 1 weeks.

After 1 weeks or more of aging, strain your liqueur through several layers of cheesecloth.

It always helps when you moisten the cheesecloth first, it enables the liquid to permeate more smoothly saving you some precious liqueur.

Once you get to the point where you have strained everything out, you can gently wring the cheesecloth to extract all of the liquid and juice.

If you still need to strain your liqueur further due to lack of clarity, you can strain it 1 more time through a coffee strainer.

Taste, if you need to add sugar, first boil the equivalent amount of water to the amount of sugar you want to add.


  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • 1 cup of sugar

Dissolve the sugar in the water and now add when cool to the liqueur . Now shake your liqueur, this should prevent there being sugar granules in the liqueur.
