a pressure washer will get most of it up. Use the smaller size tip and slowly move across the surface of the cement. You may find that the area will look cleaner now than the rest of the driveway - so be prepared to most likely continuing on to the end.

Probably the easiest and most effective would be pressure washing if you have access to one. Playing around with chemicals will be messy and you risk staining the concrete. If you wash you may have to wash to whole slab to make it uniform. If it's fresh though, you might try some hot water and a stiff bristle brush, no metal, and see if that works. Maybe a little soap too.

Great! Thank you! We do have a pressure washer so that makes me a very happy camper (If it works!) lol, plus it wouldn't hurt pressure washing the entire patio front and back! Again thank you! I'll let you know how it works out.

Yup, pressure washer - but high power and small tip can etch the concrete, so be aware.
