An interpretation of the classic Martini drink thought to be popularized by the post-beat modernist movement. A Kerouac, in traditional form, is 15 parts vermouth with a cold splash of Gin. Kerouac himself was known to "pour a cold glass of Vermouth while glancing at a bottle of gin."

kerouacing: (verb, pr: care-ooh-ahh-king) the act of being an actual jobless freeloader who is attempting to portray the situation as some sort of existential quest to "find his or her self" while constantly searching for public validation on all forms of social media.

Term originates from actual piece of human garbage Beat Generation author Jack Kerouac, who once wrote a couple of weird books that hipsters fucking looooooove and literally no one else cares about.
Ex. "John has been staying with Mark for two weeks now but hasn't bothered to look for his own place at all, I'm beginning to suspect he isn't living some nomadic free lifestyle and is actually just kerouacing."

Man! My cross country trip was great! Anytime I got bored, I just whipped my dong out and gave myself a little "Jack Kerouac". I sure got some funny looks from people driving by, but it was worth it.
