  Ginginha de S Domingos - Lisboa - Portugal
by solopes

Local traditions are fading, but some still have their followers.

Ginginha is one of them: two tiny shops were the landmark of this cherry liquor, that, of course, you may buy everywhere, including shops and supermarkets. But the tradition was to stop, ask for a Ginginha at the counter, and drink it outside, watching the passing people.

Portuguese sanitary authorities forced the closing of the small stalls that traditionalists would like to reopen. Meanwhile, Largo de S. Domingos keeps being a talking area, only without the glass in people?s hands. Till when?
