This has been in the back of my brain for a while. If anyone happens to read much Tom Robbins this beverage is mentioned a few times but I can't seem to find much info on the net.

I assumed it was a euphemism for absinthe but that appears not to be the case. Though it seems to be purely a liquor from the fermenting vats of Robbins's brain (and who wouldn't like a taste of bottled erotic literature?) and not from Punto del Visionario (another apparent, geographic euphemism\creation,) I thought I'd see if anyone could enlighten me further.

I think you're right - that it is purely a creation of Robbins - I only remember it coming up in "Still life with woodpecker" - and his description there (injecting 10cc into a lime - the way the natives do) made me think more of a tequila style beverage.

Curious. I certainly would enjoy tasting bottled erotic literature... provided it was less wood pulp, and more sex. biggrin.gif I imagine a spice flavor base, with hints of tobacco, leather, and musk... actually... that sounds tasty.
