The "purple drank"

Kids found a dangerous concoction to get high, referred to as the "purple drank or city syrup."  Kids are mixing cough syrup with codeine, with sprite, rum or vodka. The drink was popularized in Houston and by the rap scene, where the drink got it's name "city syrup." The purple-ish hue of Purple Drank comes from dyes in the cough syrup. Recently, the term has expanded to cover mixtures including over-the-counter cough syrup. Other terms for Purple Drank include Purple Oil, Sizzurp, Drank, Purple Tonic, Serbian Intestinal Scum Drizzank, Southern Lean, Texas Tea, Memphis Mud, Mrs. Dranklesworth, Derek’s Dookie Sauce, Tsikuni, Lean, Syrup, P-Flav, Slip, Purple Sprite, Surp, Bazzigazzulp (a portmanteau of Big Gulp and hip-hop slang), PG Tips, and Purp or sprite with syrup and a jolly rancher.
