Purple drank - Wikipedia
> The prescription-strength cough syrup used in purple drank contains codeine and promethazine (not to be confused with dextromethorphan; DXM).[2] The cough syrup, used in doses much higher than medically recommended, is typically mixed with ingredients such as the soft drinks Sprite, Mountain Dew or Grape Fanta and optionally "a Jolly Rancher hard fruit candy thrown in for extra sweetness."[1] The purplish hue of purple drank comes from dyes in the cough syrup. The amount of cough syrup used "can exceed up to 25 times the recommended dose."[3] The concoction is "typically consumed out of Styrofoam cups".[3]
