Freebase

  1. Syrup

    In cooking, a syrup or sirup is a thick, viscous liquid consisting primarily of a solution of sugar in water, containing a large amount of dissolved sugars but showing little tendency to deposit crystals. The viscosity arises from the multiple hydrogen bonds between the dissolved sugar, which has many hydroxyl groups, and the water. Syrups can be made by dissolving sugar in water or by reducing naturally sweet juices such as cane juice, sorghum juice, or maple sap. Corn syrup is made from corn starch using an enzymatic process that converts it to sugars. Technically and scientifically, the term syrup is also employed to denote viscous, generally residual, liquids, containing substances other than sugars in solution.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Syrup

    sir′up, n. a saturated solution of sugar boiled to prevent fermentation: the juice of fruits saturated with sugar and many flavoured liquids, treated in the same way—also Sir′up.—adj. Syr′upy. [Fr. syrop—Sp. xarope, a drink—Ar. sharāb.]

Rap Dictionary

  1. syrup(noun)

    Cough syrup Promethazine, a prescription cough suppressant that is liquid codeine. It comes in a purple, red or yellow liquid that is most often mixed with Sprite or 7-up. It may also be spread on to rolled joints or cigarettes and allowed to dry, and then smoked. Also referred to as "syzurp", "drank" , "lean" , or "purple jelly". Continues the Southern tradition of the slow "Screw Mixes" originated by DJ Screw from the early 1990's. Music is pitched to deliberately slow speeds to portray a warped, psychedelic feeling. Actually codeine and promethazine are two different things. While codeine is a cough suppressant, Promethazine is for nausea. Both are actually called syrup although PROMETHAZINE is the ACTUAL syrup. A lot of people say "it is just the codeine that matters, any syrup with codeine is fine". That is not true, Promethazine with codeine is the true lean down in H-Town where it started.
