This spirited recipe is an excellent introduction to Beirão, the incredibly popular (and notably sweet) Portuguese liqueur that's made with a trade secret blend of herbs and spices "from around the world," and which is used to make a tremendous variety of cocktails there. Here, the liqueur is added to a puree of strawberries and lemon and served over ice, with a cinnamon stick garnish that doubles as a stirrer.


  • 6 strawberries
  • 1 slice lemon (peeled)
  • crushed ice (to taste)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Beirão liquor (or similar, to taste)


  1. Blend the strawberries and lemon in a blender until pureed.
  2. In a glass, pour the crushed ice, the strawberry pulp, and Beirão Liquor to taste. Fill the rest of the glass with ice, add the cinnamon stick, and stir.
  3. Serve immediately with straws.
