A Ginjinha

Top choice bar in Baixa & Rossio

Hipsters, old men in flat caps, office workers and tourists all meet at this microscopic ginjinha (cherry liqueur) bar for that moment of cherry-licking, pip-spitting pleasure (€1.40 a shot).

Watch the owner line 'em up at the bar under the beady eye of the drink’s 19th-century inventor, Espinheira. It’s less about the grog, more about the occasion.
