Thank you colleagues for all your very interesting and thoughtful insights on this--I'm not sure I'll ever be able to identify "brosa" definitively, but now I have lots to go on! Thank you!
I also think “brosa” is a variant of “brose.” But, because the author indicates that this is a list of “new-fangled drinks,” I think the author is using brosa to refer to a drink, perhaps mead, but more likely a distilled spirit, like vodka. The OED states that “brose” usually refers to a food, as Sergei points out, but it can also refer to a drink, “Athole brose,” which is whiskey and honey. Coffee, chocolate, tea, and distilled spirits were the “new-fangled [and foreign] drinks” of seventeenth-century western Europe, and sherbet also first appeared in western Europe at this time.
