We're hanging out tonight with some old friends and trying to remember the name of a drink from the 70's (probably even later)....

What was the name used for a drink when you were at a party in HS that evolved from everyone dropping in what they brought. Usually in a large container that everyone then poured from.

The usual ingredients were Everclear, Slow Gin, and then whatever came along afterwards.

HELP, we're 4 drunken hippies trying to remember our youth. :deevee:

We used to call sodas that were a mix of everything Graveyards. Don't know if it was used for alcohol or not.

We made "Purple Passion" in trash cans. Everclear and grape juice.

Yep, Purple Passion (originally credited to the K State Coeds.

At Wichita State, when we used a base other than grape cool aid, we called it Moose Juice.

Same here. I used to really like them when I was a kid. Sure wouldn't drink that crap now, though. Yuck.

I volunteered in a haunted house once. (It was a blast, btw) We had a hidden room where we kept a 5 gallon cooler full of spoli. We dubbed it "Haunted Hooch".

Eh, you are just longing for the day that a wet spot in your bed wouldn't be from a colostomy bag. :p

Had it a few times in college,tasted like kool-aid and it went down just as easy.It was only when I got up to walk that my legs went to instant rubber.The real fruit was good,once it had soaked for awhile.

I always mixed 1 pint Everclear, 2- 32 oz. bottles of 7up, 2 oranges, 1 lemon, 1 lime, and some ice.

Hunch Punch.



A few cups of that and you were ready to fight, ****, or wrestle.

Did this in Thailand -- Everclear, Grape Kool-aid and quartered oranges and grapefruit, mixed in a properly sterized galvanized tashcan. The result is Purple Jesus, or PJ.

One thing is apparent. Our generation was very creative.
