We just had to try this special cherry liqueur from Portugal that is served in chocolate shot glasses. For a little over a Euro you can have two shots if you use the same chocolate cup. It was a kiosk outside on the waterfront and lots of fun! The shot was delicious too.

This is a very small picturesque shop where you can drink a glass of Ginja. As the shop is really small, there is no place to sit down, and that, together with the suggestive appearance (reinforced by the old-fashioned pictures and signs), makes it a nice stop if you are passing by in the area.

We stopped by for a quick drink while walking through Lisbon and loved it. The Ginginha was sweet and strong enough to give us a quick buzz before continuing on our walking tour of the city. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

The "Ginginha" is a liquor made from fruit, not bitter not too sweet, great after dinner. You can come in and buy a shots in normal glasses or in a chocolate cup, very tasty! I came in for a shot and left witha bottle to present as a gift.

Hola all, IMHO, this is a must visit if you're in Lisbon. For 1.65 euro you get a chocolate cup filled with chilled ginginha (sort of cherry flavoured and not too sweet). Drink or shoot the liquid and then you get a refill. Instructions then came that we should only drink half the ginginha and then pop the entire thing... More

This is a neat place to try ginginha, a Portuguese cherry liquor during visits to Lisbon. The tiny bar is located just a couple minutes walk from Rosso and is open from 12pm to 12am daily. You can order straight ginginha shots (€1.35) or you can have it served in a chocolate cup (€1.65). They also have port, beer, coffee... More

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
