Taraji P. Henson and Jimmy Fallon celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with a classic Tonight Show drinking game: Drinko. Each took turns dropping discs down the Plinko-like wall into random cups and forcing themselves to drink the contents.

Henson started things off with a doozy: cabbage juice and Jameson. “That’s gonna give me gas,” the Empire star joked after shooting the concoction. Fallon had it slightly easier with four-leaf clover juice and Irish tea, and another combo of Shamrock Shake and Irish coffee.

At least they didn’t have to ingest anything with potato water or corned beef gravy. Fallon had the trash can nearby just in case either had to ralph.

Drinking aside, the real fun was watching Henson mess around with the Drinko wall, voiced by Steve Higgins. “Does that tickle?” she asked, while rubbing and patting the disc against the game. “Are you getting excited?”

Watch the rounds of Drinko in the clip below.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
