Oso Negro?

Well, now that my MIL passed away, we've inherited all of her stuff. She had a few bottles of booze. One of those is Oso Negro. She told me that she got in Mexico many, many, years ago. The label, what's left of it, is completely written in Spanish. There is a label on the back, with what appears to be two recipes for mixed drinks. One of those is a Tom Collins. Both recipes are in Spanish.

The bottle might have been opened, but it if was, there wasn't much poured out, if any. I haven't tasted it.

Anybody know what this stuff is? I've been told by a Mexican co-worker that it's cheap, Mexican Vodka.

Allen, look here to see what Wikipedia says about it.

This is real inspiration. Look what Julia became!

Google agrees with your Mexican co-worker.
