Lean, also known as purple drank, sizzurp, or dirty sprite, is a popular drink among hip-hop fans and rappers. It consists of a mixture of prescription cough syrup containing codeine and promethazine, a soft drink (usually Sprite), and sometimes a hard candy (such as Jolly Rancher) for flavor.
But lean is not eco-friendly. Codeine and promethazine are synthetic drugs that can have harmful effects on your health and the environment. They can cause respiratory depression, addiction, and overdose, and they can pollute the water and soil when disposed of improperly. Plus, the soft drink and candy are full of artificial ingredients and sugar that can damage your teeth and stomach.
So how can you enjoy lean without harming yourself or the planet? The answer is simple: make minimalist lean. Minimalist lean is a lean-inspired drink that uses only natural and organic ingredients and minimal amounts of them. It is cheaper, healthier, and more sustainable than regular lean. Here’s how to make it.
Step 1: Get some herbal tea
The first ingredient you need is herbal tea. But not just any herbal tea. You need herbal tea that contains lavender and chamomile, two plants that have calming and relaxing properties. These are natural alternatives to codeine and promethazine, which are derived from opium poppies and phenothiazines respectively.
You can buy lavender and chamomile tea bags from a health food store or an online retailer, or you can grow your own herbs in your garden or balcony. You will need one tea bag for one serving of minimalist lean.
Step 2: Get some honey
The second ingredient you need is honey. But not just any honey. You need raw honey. Raw honey is honey that has not been heated, filtered, or processed in any way. It contains enzymes, antioxidants, and other nutrients that can boost your immune system and fight infections. It also adds a natural sweetness and flavor to your minimalist lean.
You can buy raw honey from a local beekeeper or a farmers’ market, or you can harvest your own honey from a backyard hive. You will need one teaspoon (5 ml) of honey for one serving of minimalist lean.
Step 3: Brew them together
The final step is to brew the herbal tea and the honey together in a cup or a mug. Boil some water in a kettle or a pot and pour it over the tea bag in your cup. Let it steep for about 5 minutes, then remove the tea bag and stir in the honey until it dissolves. Congratulations, you have just made minimalist lean!
Step 4: Enjoy responsibly
Now that you have your minimalist lean, you can enjoy it at your leisure. Sip it slowly and savor the floral and sweet taste. Feel the soothing effects of lavender and chamomile as they relax your body and mind. Experience the bliss of minimalism as you realize that you don’t need anything else to be happy.
But remember, minimalist lean is still a drink that can have mild side effects if abused or taken in excess. Do not drink more than one cup per day, and do not mix it with alcohol or other drugs. Do not drive or operate heavy machinery while under the influence of minimalist lean. And do not share it with anyone else, especially children or pets.
Minimalist lean is a drink for the conscious sipper who values nature over synthetics, health over intoxication, and sustainability over waste. It is the ultimate expression of minimalism in liquid form. Try it today and see for yourself how less is more.
