Ginjinha You Ever Had

I’ll be honest, I do quite like port. However, port is rather strong for my taste. It does taste rather nice with cheese and chorizo, and in fact, I had it with my cheese and chorizo. Still, I am typically more partial to sweeter drinks, that smell nice and taste nice, perhaps a bit fruity…
