The Irish Trash Can is going to be your new go-to St. Patrick’s Day cocktail, I promise! This drink definitely brings the “fun” factor and is totally ‘grammable!
What Is An Irish Trash Can Drink?
The Irish Trash Can is a potent cocktail that contains 3 liquors and 3 liqueurs. It is served with a can of Red Bull on top. It is blue at the bottom and green at the middle and the top.
- Blue Curacao
- Triple Sec
- Peach Schnapps
- Red Bull
As you can see, the Irish Trash Can is loaded with six types of alcohol and caffeine. Because this cocktail is extra potent, please be sure you drink responsibly. One of these drinks goes a loooong way…
Irish Trash Can vs AMF
You may have noticed that the Irish Trash Can has a lot of similarities to another potent cocktail, the AMF or Adios Mother Fucker. There are, however, a few differences between the two drinks.
AMF’s have a few things Irish Trash Cans do not, like sweet and sour mix, tequila, and clear soda. Irish Trash Cans have some ingredients that are not in the AMF, like triple sec, peach schnapps, and Red Bull.
I like both cocktails, but overall prefer the fruitier taste of the Irish Trash Can, as well as the caffeine boost it gives you.

This is my go to drink when I’m out and it’s available!!! Too bad it takes 5 to get me borderline drunk. But it’s the best taste to get there just expensive if you’re not making it yourself.
I feel u I don’t really drink gin or peach schnapps so I’m just using vodka and blue curasucko and tequila to save a lil money but it’s still cheaper making it at home bars usually charge $12 or nine dollars for a trashcan when you can make five of them
My friends and I make these all the time now! So much better than a vodka red bull!
What about this makes it Irish?
