A cement mixer is the name of a shot drink that is known as more of party or prank shot, than anything tasty, which is why it’s named accordingly. Because of its ingredients, the shot actually curdles, which makes for an extremely disgusting texture, but some people do find it tasty.

There are two different ways that people ingest the shot, and it makes for a great party experience (especially when you are particularly intoxicated, or want to have fun with an intoxicated friend). Regardless of your opinion on it, the cement mixer is synonymous with a party, and is one of the more polarizing creations in the mixology world. It certainly is the kind of shot that creates a reaction, whether you are drinking it or watching someone drink it.


  • 1.5 ounces of chilled Bailey’s Irish Crème liqueur
  • ½ ounce of lime juice


  1. Pour the Irish Crème into a shot glass.
  2. Pour the lime juice over the crème.
  3. Take the shot, and hold it in your mouth.
  4. The magic happens when you shake your head, so that the Irish Crème fat and the lime juice’s acid create a curdled, sludge-like mixture. This mixture is often compared to liquid cement, hence the name of the shot.


  • Shot glass

The bottom line is that a cement mixer requires a strong stomach. It is considered as a bit of a “gag” or “trick”, and is certainly is more of a spring break partier choice than anything a sophisticated drinker might order. It should be noted that the drinker can actually take the lime juice and Irish Crème liquor as separate shots, and mix it in their mouth. Timing is also important, as the drinker must swallow the mixture before it gets too solid. As one can imagine, this drink is regularly on “worst shots” lists everywhere, and because of the chemical reaction, is the kind of shot that you pass to a friend just to record their surprise at what actually happens. Feel free to drink your cement mixers – but do it responsibly, and not on a weak stomach!
