sweet. Located in the heart of Lisbon, right next to the Great theater, the ginginha is one of those historical places you can't miss if you're a foodie. A little glass of ginginha costs 1 and it's usually drank outside, since there are no seats available in the little bar.

Don't get you scare by the usually long line. It moves very quickly, because the only thing you'll get in this place behind Rossio is a shot of ginja. And while it is no different from what you can get elsewhere, and without the traditional chocolate cup, you never drank Ginjia if you haven't done it here at least once.

A Ginjinha is a famous storefront, right by Rossio Square, that sells nothing more than shots of the sour cherry Portuguese liquor called Ginjinha (or Ginja). The liquor can be purchased with or without cherries and costs about 1.40 euro for a small plastic cup. It's traditionally served in chocolate cups, but this shop does not offer those. There is usually a line, but it moves quickly. We were there in the evening and it was very crowded. The only accept cash, so be prepared. There were also random dudes in suits lurking around trying to sell cocaine to tourists, which was interesting and bizarre.

After hearing about Ginjinha from a fellow traveller in my hostel I knew it was something I had to try for myself, and it was incredible! I went to this place because it was nearby, but after trying a few others I ended up always coming back here. The staff were friendly, and they offered the best value for money. Ginjinha is basically a sweet cherry liqueur served in an edible chocolate cup! There is a 'proper' way to drink it though, you drink the first shot, get your free refill, drink half of this, and then put the half full chocolate cup in your mouth!

We stumbled upon this place partially by accident. We didn't want to join the rest of our group to go inside the nearby church. While we were waiting outside, we saw a long line of locals/tourists lined up at this small hole in the wall establishment and leaving with shots of alcohol. Intrigued and confused, we lined up behind them and left with our first short of ginjinha. It was a very sour, but also sweet at the same time. And it was so, so, so strong. I loved it. Definitely a must for the full Lisbon experience. We may or may not have gone back for a second go after dinner.

A-Ginjunha es un dominuto bar ubicado en un rincón de la Plaza del Rossio, donde los amantes del ginja (licor dulce de guindas) tienen una parada obligada. Nosotros lo conocimos porque acá terminó nuestro tour gastronómico por la ciudad y, si bien no somos muy amantes de las bebidas alchólicas, nos encantó conocer este rincón por la historia que tiene. No se imaginen nada grande, es solo un bar de paso para tomarse un chupito.
