8 Amazing Trash Can Drink Recipes

These are commonly served in individual portions using Collins glasses, with an upturned can of Red Bull at the top. This is where they get the name from. We have put quantities below for a multi person drink, but simply scale down the quantities by 8 for an individual serving.
