Lisbon -- A snapshot from our Mouraria Street Party in Lisbon, which was held earlier this month in conjunction with Obscura Day. As one might guess, lots of fun was had by all!
Lisboetas are serious about their ginja, a liqueur made from a sour cherry of the same name. The fruit might not be so sweet but is fortunately well suited to being turned into this smooth drink, which is enjoyed both as an aperitif and digestif. Our Culinary Crossroads walk in Lisbon wouldn’t be complete without a tipple of the good stuff.
