We’re not going to any bars on Saint Patrick’s Day. Why? For one, it’s amateur hour. Also, the odds of stepping in green vomit hover near 100 percent. That said, we’re still going to get loaded — and not just on green beer. Avoid feeling bloated by sucking down too many brews by subbing in these five festive Saint Patty’s Day cocktails and shots.

In a cup of freshly-brewed coffee, add 1 oz Jameson and 1 oz Baileys. Give it a stir, and finish it off with whipped cream.

• 1 1/2 oz Baileys Irish Cream
• 1 1/2 oz Jameson Irish Whiskey

Pour 1 1/2 oz Jameson and 1 1/2 oz Baileys into shaker with ice; shake. Pour into an old-fashioned glass and take it down.

• 1 1/2 oz Jameson Irish Whiskey
• 1/2 oz Kahlúa coffee liqueur
