You will like to know that...

Ginja Espinheira (with fruit) is a liqueur produced by the famous Ginjinha Espinheira bar in Largo de São Domingos (Portugal). This was the first company in Lisbon to market this drink. The creator of this liqueur was a *Galician monk+ from the church of San Antonio, called Francisco Espinheira. He began making it in 1840. After the success, he decided to start selling it to the public and not only to increase the popularity of the liqueur but also to transform the **Ginja (Ginja is the short version of the name Ginjinha) into the typical drink of Lisbon.

This delicious liqueur is made from sour cherries or "guindas", which are usually harvested in June. These are bottled and covered with brandy and cinnamon twigs to store for a period of 40 days. Then 250 grams of sugar is added to each litre of Aguardiente and the mixture is shaken daily for a week to complete the flavour. Once this process is complete, the liqueur can be enjoyed.

Ginja reveals a unique taste. In the mouth, it is creamy, with a long persistence that constantly enhances the notes of wild cherries. You can enjoy it at room temperature as an aperitif, served in small glasses, to drink in a single pass. It is ideal to enjoy it after meals, as it is digestive on the one hand, but also an excellent accompaniment for chocolate on the other. The Portuguese love this drink and the appreciation for this liqueur has been passed down from generation to generation.
