What is in a Cement Mixer Shot
Easy to remember, there are only two Cement Mixer Shot ingredients. Both are bar cart staples, so you may already have them ready to go.
- Irish cream liqueur: Baileys is our go-to, a favorite in our Oatmeal Cookie Shot recipe.
- Lime juice: Freshly squeezed is always preferred for a fresher taste, but store-bought would also work in this shot recipe.
How to Make a Cement Mixer Shot
This unique shot is easy to mix and is sure to make a statement. If you want to surprise your friends or prank someone for April Fools Day, this is the perfect shot to make.
- Pour Irish cream liqueur into the shot glass.
- Layer the lime juice into the shot glass by pouring it over the back of a spoon.

You will want to take this shot immediately after mixing the ingredients. The chemical reaction between the lime juice and Irish cream works quickly to thicken the liquid in the shot. The longer you wait the more cement-like the shot will become, making it harder for the taker to get it down.
It is worth noting that the consistency of this shot can really take someone by surprise. If you have difficulty with food textures or a strong gag reflex, it may be wise to have a chaser nearby or try one of our other delicious shot recipes.
