A mixture of champagne or ginger ale and ripple. It was first mentioned on the episode of Sanford and Son entitled "Fred & Carol and Fred & Donna" in which he says he has a mixture of ginger ale and ripple. It was mentioned later in the episode "Superflyer" in which they decide to get champagne (not ginger ale) because they are on a plane flying first class and Redd Foxx also wants some ripple to mix it with, saying they could call it "champipple."

Champipple was first used as a phrase in one of the early Sanford and Son episodes. It was defined as a drink which was a mixture of ginger ale (_not_ champagne - which is too expensive in the hood) and ripple.
