Purple drank, which is also called lean and many other names, is an alcoholic drink manufactured by blending hard candy and prescription-grade cough syrups with soda and a soft drink. The mixture originated in Houston, Texas and is very popular among the urban hip-hop culture or those that live in the south or those who are from the hip hop culture. It’s a popular beverage to accompany a hip-hop record or during a concert because it is not a carbonated soft drink like soda pop or diet cola, but rather has more of a flavor like blueberry gum or grapefruit juice with little to no carbonation.
Purple drank is not made in this country anymore, but has its roots in other countries. In Japan, the name for purple drink is Kikkoman. While in Germany the name for purple drink is Schank.
Many say that lean is the king of the drinks but there are others that say purple drank has better taste. I think they have the wrong idea about purple drank since it really does have a nice taste when mixed with soda pop. I would probably prefer it mixed with regular soda pop if possible.
One of the main differences between purple drank lean and regular soda pop is that purple drink lean is more expensive than regular soda pop because it is made from more expensive sweeteners like honey. But the taste is worth all the cost since it tastes much better.
If you want to try purple drink, there are many stores that sell them. Some of them sell purple drank lean at a much lower price than regular soda pop so you can try a sample for yourself to see if it is the drink for you. Sometimes they will also give you a free bottle to try out. You may also find some where it is sold for free or you just have to pay a small fee.
If you want to try out purple drink, make sure that you use the same recipe that is used in the store. Make sure the sugar and sweetener are the same as in both the purple drink lean and regular soda pop and that you are planning on buying. Most of the purple drink lean that you see in stores are only available at the store that sells soda pop.
