When I was a child my Dad would make me a drink to "build me up" because I was so thin. I remember that it had an egg in it and it was sweet. Does anyone know what it could be and have a recipe for it?

Yes, Sonia, that was "ponche". I believe all children of every generation born before 1970 were given ponche after going through some illness involving fever or loss of weight, to rush their recovery (I always had problems with my tonsils, so I got it lots of times Smile).

My grandma made it with Jerez "Quina" (sweet sherry brand), one egg yolk and some additional sugar to make it into a paste. It was eaten with a teaspoon and I remember it being delicious. All grandmothers swore by it.

Sí, Sonia, aquello era ponche. Creo que a todos los niños de todas las generaciones anteriores a 1970 se les dió ponche después de salir de alguna enfermedad con fiebre o pérdida de peso, para acelerar su recuperación (yo siempre tuve problemas de anginas, así que me lo daban muchas veces Smile)

My abuela lo hacía con Jerez Quina, una yema de huevo y azúcar adicional para hacer una pasta. Se comía con cucharilla y yo lo recuerdo como algo delicioso. Todas las abuelas tenían una confianza ciega en ello.

Ok, it could be cod liver oil with condensed milk and egg yolks....it
tasted good but that fish oil ... ugh!
I prefered the one Terechu said, it tasted very good.

Ok, pudiera haber sido aceite de higado de bacalao con leche condensada
y yemas de huevo....sabia bien, pero ese aceite de pescado....uff!
Yo preferia el que Terechu menciono, ese si sabia muy bien.
