from Fancyclopedia 2 ca. 1959
(Margaret St Clair) A fabulous drink appearing in various fannish and minor pro epics. It actually exists as a sort of sacramental wine (the astringent, narcotic juice of Sarcostemma viminale) in the Hindu religion.

from Fancyclopedia 2 Supplement ca. 1960:
A more authoritative source of the word as a stfnal term is Huxley's Brave New World, not the St. Clair stories cited originally.
