The Irish Trash Can is a vibrant green drink that’s a hit, especially around St. Patrick’s Day. Combining a mix of liquors and Red Bull, this cocktail gets its eye-catching color from Blue Curacao and the energy drink.

This drink, a modern classic, originated from college parties where everyone poured their leftover liquors into a big container. It’s the perfect way to add some festive fun to your celebrations!



Prepare Your Glass:

Add the Red Bull:

  • Add more ice to fill the glass if needed.
  • Turn a can of Red Bull upside down and place it in the glass.


For an extra festive touch, rim your glass with green sugar. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even use different flavors of energy drinks to give it a unique twist. The Irish Trash Can is perfect for parties, camping trips, or any time you want to add a bit of excitement to your drink menu. Despite the seemingly chaotic mix of ingredients, the flavors blend surprisingly well, making it a crowd-pleaser.
This cocktail isn’t just a drink—it’s a party in a glass. The bright green color and the fun presentation with the upside-down Red Bull can make it a conversation starter. Whether you’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day or just looking to mix things up, the Irish Trash Can is sure to be a hit.
