"Dirty Sprite” became popular in 2011 and consists of Sprite, cough syrup, and a Jolly Rancher. A story in the New York (NY) Times on November 4, 2011, stated that a “Dirty Sprite” was Sprite with vodka, but this is incorrect. “Dirty Sprite (Mixtape)” was cited on TheMixtapeDaily on November 16, 2010.
A “Dirty Sprite” of Sprite and Powerade was cited in print in 2012.
Wikipedia: Sprite (soft drink)
Sprite is a colorless, lemon-lime flavored, caffeine-free soft drink, created by the Coca-Cola Company. It was introduced in the United States in 1961. This was Coke’s response to the popularity of 7 Up. It comes in a primarily silver, green, and blue can or a green transparent bottle with a primarily green and blue label.

Slang for lean, sizzurp, codein. purple drank and other street names as well.
2 oz Codeine
1 12 oz can/bottle of Sprite (bottle makes it easier to mix as far as shaking the contents)
1 or 2 grape Jolly Ranchers
I crush a Xanax bar in mine
Shake it up and pour over ice. Sip and lean.

They drank Alizé cognac in plastic cups, along with “dirty Sprite.” (Recipe: combine vodka and Sprite in half-empty Sprite bottle, serve.)
The one flaw of the NYT Lex Luger article is that the writer believes “dirty Sprite” is Sprite w/ vodka and not cough syrup.
