Irish Trash Can recipeThe ultimate drinking holiday here in the States is St. Patrick’s Day, when everyone thinks they’re Irish, and green drinks flow like water. One cocktail guaranteed to plaster you to the wall is the Irish Trash Can. Made with half the liquor in the bar and a can of Red Bull, the Irish Trash Can is a modern classic.

Prep Time:
Total Time:

Pour all the ingredients except for the Red Bull into a tall cocktail glass with ice. Stir the liquor with a long bar spoon. Pour the Red Bull into the glass, and leave the can on top; not all of the energy drink will fit. Drink your Irish Trash Can with a straw, and the Red Bull will continue to fill the cocktail.

    I first heard about this drink a year or so ago. and finally got to try it last summer. and I love it! Everyone thinks it sounds so gross till they try it. One great way to make it for like a party is kind of like jungle juice. Just leave the red bull out till the end. And get the same size of every bottle. Love love love this recipe!

    • Righteous! There’s a fair munber of drinks like this, with 5 or 6 ingredients of equal measure and a couple of variant ingredients, in this case the blue curacao and Red Bull. Thanks so much for stopping by, Kalee!
