In this tour we get to know one of the most traditional drinks of Lisbon, ginjinha, a liqueur made with aguardente and sour cherries.
Over the course of about three hours, we walk through some of the more famous areas of the city, including Rossio, Terreiro do Paço and Restauradores.
It is thought that ginjinha was introduced to Portugal by a Galician friar and continues to be a tradition in our country. It is especially popular in Lisbon and Óbidos.
We will visit the oldest and most iconic taverns, and also a place where ginjinha is served in edible chocolate cups, a new trend that started with the Chocolate Festival in Óbidos. We’ll have time also for a pastel de nata (custard tart).
In all locations you will taste a shot, com elas ou sem elas (literally with or without them, the cherries, that is).
And for “soaking up” this strong liqueur, we enjoy some true and traditional Portuguese delicacies, including suckling pig, in a old “tasca”, now renovated.
Hours: Monday to Saturday, around three hours.
Price: 45 €
