How to Make a Cement Mixer Shot

If you are playing a gag on a friend, or just looking to try something different, a cement mixer shot can be the ideal drink.

However, you do not have to worry at all because a cement mixer shot is a lot more pleasant than it sounds, and doing one can be a fun experience.
