Chef #500620's Note:
This is a typical Venezuelan popular adult and kids drink. It's very easy to prepare and definitely quenches thirst. I have tried to simplify the preparation by doing lt my way. In Venezuela the word ·"papelon" (written in Spanish as "papelón") means dark brown sugar pressed down. If you combine it with gin or vodka you convert this refreshing drink into an excellent adult mixed drink whch I have come to call "Papelon Tom Collins" and "Papelon John Collins". These variants are strictly my invention so I'll take the blame if you don't agree. Use plastic bowl or serving jug. The violent change of temperature of the liquids may damage glassware.
