The cement mixer shot is both one of the most popular shot drinks and, in some opinions, one of the most disgusting. Why it has endured is a great mystery in the bar world. The reason may have a lot to do with the reaction of those who drink it and the laugh their friends get out of watching it go down.

The drink itself does not taste bad—citrus and cream are not a poor combination. The real problem is the texture; it is named the cement mixer because it is imagined to be a lot like drinking concrete. If you have a tendency to gag on certain food textures, this shot is probably not for you. It can be a hard drink to get down and there are plenty of tastier shooters to enjoy instead.
