My mom gave me this drink recipe, which originally came from my cousin Maribel of Avilés. I don't think I've ever tasted it, but Maribel is a wonderful cook, so it must be good. First, the Spanish original:

1 liter orujo
1 kilo asucar
1 kilo fresa

Dejar un mes para poder tomar.


Roughly translated:

1 quart orujo (perhaps closest to brandy?)
2.2 pounds sugar
2.2 pounds strawberries

Combine ingredients and then let sit for a month before serving.

Does anyone know what would make a good substitute for orujo?

Orujo is roughly equivalent to Italian grappa or French marc. It is distilled from the solids that are left over from making wine. Grappas have become a high profile item, and most grappas are too expensive to substitute for orujo in your recipes. I think that an inexpensive brandy would be the best substitute.

As strawberry season approaches, this recipe become increasingly tempting. I'm going to try it.
