"Refreshing drink" Top 5 Page for this destination Little things to notice in Lisbon Tip by solopes

  Lisbon - Portugal
by solopes

One of the traditional liquors in Potugal, is Ginjinha, made from a sort of cherry. The most famous (and the best) is the one from Alcobaca, but tradition shows it being drunk in Obidos and in central Lisboa, specially in S. Domingos square, R. Portas de S. Antão or near the Parque Mayer.

But a secret known only by locals is a cheap long drink in a very small bar in Restauradores - O Pirata. It's a secret that seems to be made with Port wine, and has two varieties: Pirata and Perna de Pau, this one my favourite.

Look for the entrance at left of Eden building (Virgin).
