parisrut परिस्रुत्

Definition: Is the name of a drink which is mentioned first in the Atharvaveda, and which was distinct from both Surā and Soma, but was intoxicating. According to Mahīdhara, the liquor was made from flowers (Puspa). Zimmer thinks that it was the family drink, and this is supported by the fact that in the Atharvaveda it twice occurs as a household beverage.6 Hillebrandt is of opinion that it was very much the same as Surā.
