    What the hell happened to the GRAIN .?? We used to mix it in a new trash can and one serving was adequate to do you for 2 hours of Sam and Dave or beach boogieing

    We cut a plug out of a watermelon and poured the ingredients in. That was in the 60s,

    Here is what we did in college: Ingredients [poisons]: 1x 20 gal trash can cleaned, two blocks of ice, 13 cans tropical punch drink mix, 8 half gal Vodka, 4 fifths everclear, 5-6 bags hard fruits (apples, cherries, pears, pineapple, etc). Cut up fruit, put into trashcan and soak in the everclear for 1-2 days (apples will get brown). Split fruit into half into a smaller containers. Mix 7 cans tropical punch mix into trashcan with water (~17 gals) and add the ice. Add in 4 half girl vodka and 1/2 the fruit (with 1/2 the everclear it was soaked in). serve to about 200 people. Repeat when PJ is empty. Makes 2x 20 gal trash cans of PJ.

    back in the day - we made it with the everclear and grape juice in a new galvinized trash can! Must put cut up fruit in it first, pour in the everclear, let it sit for the fruit to soak up the booze - THEN put everything else in. Oh my!

    bull the purple jesus we knew back in the day was made from 100% grain alcohol and grape juice. Not some smooth girly drink.

    my first thought was it tasted like wine (which I don't like), everyone else thought it tasted like cough syrup, yuck.
