There are some variations of Lean. For example, Promethazine and Codeine syrup is usually Purple in color. But there are other colors of syrup that work the same way. There is a golden colored syrup (hydrocodone based) and other colors as well.
Lean slows you down. It makes you feel good. It's meant to be sipped on, and it taste damn good. One of the best feelings you will ever experience. Euphoria with a hint of sedation.
John: I can't man.
Chris: Why not?
John: I'm sipping on that lean already bro. Don't need that alcohol.
Chris: Fuck that, gimme some!
-Promethazine w/Codeine VC <- Sizzurp (active ingredient)
-Original Sprite Soda <- Mixing ingredient (although different flavors of sprite are now used, such as sprite remix)
-Jolly rancher candy <- Flavor additive
Put it all in a styrofoam cup and enjoy. The codeine is mainly responsible for the euphoric feeling after drinking lean. Promethazine causes motor skill impairment, lethargy, extreme drowsiness, as well as a disassociative feeling from all other parts of the body, specifically the stomach and digestive system. If it doesn't have promethazine w/ Codeine, it isn't real sizzurp.
The mixed drink combination known as "lean", is normally the color purple, due the added ingredient sizzurp, which is originally a dark purple syrup. There are other colors of sizzurp which can be added to create lean, but the purple is the true sizurp
Lean does not contain ANY form of alcohol, crushed pills, or other liquids in general.
Dat lean got my swervin.
"Mayne... hol' up... I got too much lean in my cup..." -Quoted from a popular song found in the south.
Derived from the term to describe a non-fatty piece of steak, lean can be extended to describe a person for example. "That guy is lean bro", meaning he is not full of shit and he is a cool guy.
An important feature of this definition is that one cannot claim lean upon themselves. One cannot say that their own stuff is lean, or that they are lean them-self. Lean can only be given, bestowed or honored to a person, place or thing... ya hear me?
Here's a variation of the recipe.
-1 Styrofoam cup (to keep tradition)
-4 teaspoons of Promethazine and Codeine cough syrup. More can be used at one's own discretion.
-2-4 shots of Vodka (that will really set the buzz off)
-1- can of sprite (use as much or less as you want)
-1 splash of cranberry juice. This will help smooth the vodka out
combine all and enjoy that buzz.
Perfect for blunts!
