3. Irish Trash Can

While the name may indicate an Irish origin, it’s a bit misleading. According to the Irish Central website, the drink only has an “Irish” moniker because of the green color of the drink. However, the “trash” part is true.

This extremely potent drink can trash your senses and might as well leave you identifying as Irish by the end of the day, who knows? Also, due to the variety of ingredients and a can sticking out of it, it resembles a trash can, hence, the name.

It’s a strong, fruity drink whose ingredients include:

  • 1 oz rum
  • 1 oz gin
  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz triple sec
  • ½ oz peach schnapps
  • 1 oz blue curacao liqueur

  2. Fill the glass up with ice. 
  3. Pour over vodka, gin, rum, triple sec, and peach schnapps. 
  4. Top it with red bull, leave the can inserted, and watch the color filter in and change slowly. 
  5. Get a straw and get ready to lose your senses!
