FAQ's

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Why is the Cement Mixer cocktail not shaken or stirred?

The Cement Mixer is not shaken or stirred to maintain the distinct layers of Bailey's and lime juice. Mixing them together too much before consumption can result in the mixture thickening prematurely, which is part of the unique experience when the drink is consumed.

INGREDIENT_SPECIFICS

What happens when Bailey's and lime juice mix in the Cement Mixer?

When Bailey's and lime juice are mixed, the acid in the lime juice causes the cream in Bailey's to curdle, creating a thick texture. The drink is known for this unusual texture change, which is intended to surprise or challenge the drinker.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

How should the Cement Mixer be served for the best experience?

The Cement Mixer should be served in a shot glass, with Bailey's and lime juice in separate layers. Drinkers are typically advised to take the shot and then shake their heads back and forth to mix the ingredients in their mouth, producing the cocktail's signature texture.

OCCASION_SUITABILITY

What type of occasions is the Cement Mixer cocktail suitable for?

Due to its unique and somewhat challenging nature, the Cement Mixer is often chosen for dares or as a novelty drink at parties rather than enjoyed for its flavor. It is particularly popular at bachelor or bachelorette parties, college parties, or any occasion where guests are looking for something unusual and memorable.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content of the Cement Mixer compare to other shot drinks?

With an alcohol content of 8.5%, the Cement Mixer is relatively low in alcohol compared to many other shot drinks, which can range from 30% to 50% alcohol by volume depending on the spirits used. This makes the Cement Mixer more about the experience of the texture change rather than the effects of the alcohol.
