A popular Portuguese liquor made from ginja (a sour berry),
sugar, and schnapps, is my new favorite thing. They call it Ginjinha (so it’s fun
to say) and serve it as a shot (so it’s fun to consume). As if that weren’t
enough, at a small shop near Coimbra’s central plaza, Ginjinha comes in a
chocolate shot cup. That’s right, people. Chocolate. Shot. Cup. Drink the
liquor, eat the cup. It’s a thing of beauty.
