What is a Jorum?

Hence this website is a container of things, no doubt a lot of them concerned with drinking or finding the next place to drink intoxicating substances.

Jorum has been used in other places too, such as in the phrase: "jorum of skee" meaning a shot of liquor. This turned up in "Death's Passport," a Dan Turner story by Robert Leslie Bellem. Published in Spicy Detective in 1940. (Thanks to William Denton for this one, in his page: Twists, Slugs and Roscoes: A Glossary of Hardboiled Slang)
