Fun Cement Mixer Shot is the perfect party shooter! So easy to make and looks crazy fun.
Cement Mixer Shot
The cement mixer is one of those party shots that everyone needs to try at least once in their life.
I am going to warn you that the longer the ingredients sit together the more the texture turns into cottage cheese and the mixture gets thick.
This is not a cocktail shot that you want to make ahead of time and let sit unless you like the texture of uncured cement. LOL!
This is one of the most popular shot drinks! The Cement Mixer drink is a unique concoction that you will not forget drinking.
If you have a weak stomach, have had a bit to drink, or have an issue with food textures this may not be the shot for you!
This drink recipe is one of those cocktails that can honestly be a bit hard to swallow. The combination of Irish cream and lime juice is a unique taste.
If you are looking to serve a unique party shooter everyone will be talking about this is the perfect addition to your party!
What is in a Cement Mixer Shot?
There are only two ingredients to make this shooter.
- Bailey's Irish Cream Liqueur
- Lime Juice
Lime Juice - You can use fresh-squeezed lime juice or bottled lime juice like Rose's Lime Cordial.
Lime Juicer - If you are using fresh limes you can use a lime juicer to get all of the juice easier.
How to Make a Cement Mixer Shot
Step 1 - Pour the Irish Cream into a shot glass.
Step 2 - Slowly add the lime juice to the shot glass.
Step 3 - You can stir the shot in the glass or take the shot and hold it in your mouth. Shake your head to create the texture of the cement mixer.
What makes the Cement Mixer so thick?
The chemical reaction from the fat of the Irish Cream when it combines with the acid of the lime juice creates a lumpy slurry that gets thicker the longer it sits.
If you want to see some magic in a shot glass stir the mixture together with a straw and watch the interesting chemical reaction right before your eyes.
The more lime juice you add the chunkier the mixture will be. The addition of more acidity of lime juice makes this drink THICK and CHUNKY!
If you are worried about the cocktail getting too thick in the shot glass you can make this in 2 separate glasses.
Pour the shot of baileys in one glass and the shot of lime juice in a second glass. Start with taking the bailey's shot and then add the lime juice. Don't swallow yet! Make sure to shake your head to get the full texture of wet cement.
