Irish Trash Can Recipe
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.
What’s In It?
- Blue Curacao
- Triple Sec
- Peach Schnapps
- Red Bull
As you can see, the recipe 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…
ITC vs AMF
You may have noticed that this 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. The ITC havs 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 ITC, as well as the caffeine boost it gives you.
