Felipe Alou

Spanish 2 students are reading a book about Felipe Alou.  Felipe is a baseball player from the Dominican Republic who comes to the US during the height of the Jim Crow era to play ball.  Students learn about the Dominican Republic and in class we made a traditional Dominican recipe.  Morir Soñando (to die dreaming) is a popular drink in the Dominican Republic.  Spanish 2 students juiced oranges, added evaporated milk, sugar, and ice, and then poured the juice between two cups to “blend” it.  Some students really liked it, and others didn’t.  If you think a melted Creamsicle sounds delicious, you should try a cup of Morir Soñando!
