Drink Trash Can

Trash Can

So this drink has the same goal as the AMF: getting you drunk quickly. Like the AMF, I was definitely willing to try. While I didn't remember to get the bartender's exact recipe, the main idea is a combination of liqueurs, ice, and flipping over a can of Red Bull, letting it sit upside-down at the top of the glass.

Now there's a possibility that you can drink casually without fear of the Red Bull endlessly flowing out into the glass. This certainly depends on the size glass you use and the physics involved dealing with liquids and pressure. But I say whether or not the Red Bull will endlessly flow out, it's a lot more fun to drink as if it will overflow. That is, just keep on sipping until there's no more liquid.

From this experience, I'd suggest letting some Red Bull flow down and hit the bottom, just for a more rounded taste. Otherwise, getting an early start will result in drinking nothing but Red Bull at the end.

Search results show that this drink is also called an Irish Trash Can, because the drink turns green upon adding the Red Bull.

The following recipe seems popular:
.5 oz Blue Curaçao
.5 oz Gin
.5 oz Light Rum
.5 oz Peach Schnapps
.5 oz Triple Sec
.5 oz Vodka
1 can Red Bull
