Lolita began as a novel and has become a code-word for the attractions of sexual girlhood. The novel titled Lolita was written by Vladimir Nabokov between 1949 and 1955, and published in France in 1955 and in the United States in 1958. Nabokov was born in Russia in 1899 and emigrated to the United States in 1940 after living in Europe since the Russian Revolution. He taught at Stanford University, Wellesley College, and Cornell University until the financial success of Lolita allowed him to stop teaching and move to Montreux, Switzerland, where he died in 1977. Lolita tells the story of Humbert Humbert, a middle-aged man who falls desperately in love with a young girl, Lolita, whom Nabokov famously described as a “nymphet.” Humbert Humbert marries Lolita’s mother in order to get close to her. After Lolita’s mother’s death, Humbert Humbert’s passion is consummated during the course of an epic car trip, which ends in tragedy.

The Lolita drink isn’t as risque as the book but it’s very good especially if you use top shelf tequila. Try 1800 or Patron Tequila.
