Tentura is the traditional local drink of Patras. LOUKATOS TENTURA based on a traditional family recipe, stands up for its unique taste and strong aroma. The reason for its dark brown color and its aroma is the use of various spices (cinnamon/nutmeg/clove) and other scented ingredients. You can drink it straight or with crushed ice usually after a meal as a digestive. It is often used in combination with other drinks, so as to give a scent to coffee, foods and sweets.
Tentura (Greek: tentura) or tintura, from the Italian word for tincture, is a liqueur traditionally produced in the Greek city of Patras since the 15th century. It contains alcohol, water, sugar and fermented essences of cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, and citrus fruits. Tentura is a quite dark shade of orange-red, hence its name. It is served chilled, in a small glass. It can also be added in espresso coffee, which is then called corretto. It is also served at room temperature. The alcohol it contains is from the nearby winery in Patras.
