The Ronaldo

Licor Beirão is a Portuguese liqueur made from spices and herbs from around the world that can be used as a substitute for many of your favorite cocktails. It tastes especially fantastic in this variation of the caipirinhas.

This drink is named after Cristiano Ronaldo, the star soccer player for the Portuguese national fútbol team. Ronaldo is known for becoming one of the highest paid players in history when he made the move from Manchester United to Real Madrid at a $131.6 million price tag. He’s also the first European league player to score 40 times in a season, two years in a row. But what he could be the most famous for are his good looks. He has nabbed several best-looking celebrity awards over the years, including the Sports Illustrated Reader’s Picks Award for Best Looking Male Athletes.
