After trying all of the known ginjinha places in the area, this proved to be the best tasting one of all. This one makes all the others taste like cough syrup! Bought 3 bottles to take back home with me.

Known as a shop that still produces its own ginjinha, it was just down the road from our hotel, so we simply had to try a shot. We went for with cherries, dangerously moreish I have to say! People stand around outside having their shot,...More

I first heard of this place watching the netflix show Somebody Feed Phil. It has high praises from the foodie circles of Lisbon (according to this show) and I mostly sought it out of curiosity. I love me some alcohol and I'm always curious to...More

A short walk away from the Rossio, you come upon people queuing up in front of a tiny shop and out of curiosity peep in to find that it is one of Lisbon's oldest ginjinha or ginja outlets. We too lined up and tasted a...More

There are a good variety of homemade ginjinha, wine and porto de wine. You can taste it firstly, so you will be sure about your choice :-)

When in Lisboa, drink ginjinha! We were lucky enough to be staying only a block from this place and could have this little nightcap before heading off to bed. €1.40 per shot and make sure to indicate if you want with or without the berries...More

Drink a thimble-size glass of Ginja or Eduardino, famous liqueurs! Have a taste of Lisbon in this very nice one-door shop. Down to the core Portuguese. An unforgettable experience that I first had in 1971! Highly recommended.

There was a (fast-moving) line when we visited on a Saturday evening. The “bartender” doesn’t speak English, and seems accustomed to just pouring shot after shot of ginjinha. It’s only 1.40 Euros for one, so worth a taste if you’re in the area. Eat the...More
