As you all know, I post Big Time Rush themed drinks. From the show to the music, there’s a drink for it all. But this week I decided to take a little break and focus on a lesser-known sector of BTR - Heffron Drive. I asked all of you to vote for your favorite song, and the song you guys picked was…
While I don’t exactly agree, I still really love this song. (“Stand Forever” had my vote.) “Quiet Please” is relatable…but it’s also kind of confusing. They like each other. She seems to like him more. But they fight. And he wants to date other people. So he’s telling her they’ll be together eventually…but really he’s lying so he doesn’t hurt her. And from the sound of it, he’s lying because he kind of wants to keep on her the backburner as a “just in case” as well, which is, you know, always mature.
So for the drink. I added a dash of aromatic bitters and orange blossom water to reflect the bitterness and complexity. Hypnotiq for the confusion. Then I added rum and ginger ale for the fun they do have together. And then shaken, because you know the end result of whatever this song is about is going to leave them both shaken up and wishing it never happened. This drink is cute, semi-sweet, a little immature, and a little bit of “I hope this doesn’t ruin our friendship.”
4 Parts Ginger Ale
1 Part Rum
1 Part Hypnotiq
1 TSP + 1/4 TSP Orange Blossom Water
Dash of Aromatic Bitters
Add ingredients into a mixer. Add ice. Shake. (Hold it tight!) Then pour into a martini glass and garnish with a newly budding rose.
Check back tomorrow for the Big Time Rush Christmas Special drink :)
We’ll make it till tomorrow and past the sorrow…with the help of the “Quiet Please” drink that is.
