The Q Life

A view of the Champagne Flutes at A Dinner with Rick Bayless and Daniela Soto-Innes part of the Bank of America Dinner series curated by Chefs Club at Hôtel Plaza Athénée on October 14, 2016 in New York City.

A dad has gone viral after making a shocking discovery in his bathroom — his little girl was making her own cocktails (sans alcohol) to unwind after a stressful day.

Brandon, known on TikTok as @brandon_rainwater, captured the moment he realized his 11-year-old daughter was drinking “mimosas,” with sparkling grape juice and orange juice.

Brandon started the video with a whisper, “I think my little girl had a bad day at school today, or maybe she got a lot on her mind, I mean… stressful day for an 11-year-old, I guess. I heard the water running, so I came up here to turn the water off, and this is what I seen.”

He gives us a tour of the bath she’s left behind filled with bubbles, a cheese plate on the side outfitted with Snickers and Twizzlers, and the pièce de résistance — a bottle of bubbly (sparkling grape juice) and a jug of orange juice to make herself a drink.

“This is where I don’t know what’s going on… Who, I mean who showed my little girl how to make mimosas?” Brandon says with a laugh, “You know you mix them two together, it’s mimosas. Who been drinking mimosas with my little girl?”

“That’s enough, I was already laughing — this isn’t even her first bottle! This is her second one,” he says as he grabs an empty bottle of sparkling grape juice from the soap dish, telling us she went back into the fridge to get more.

As Brandon smiles at the camera, he said, “Hey I ain’t gonna say nothing. I’mma let her do her thing. We all get stressed out sometimes.”

“And we need to eat a cheese plate and drink mimosas,” he concludes as he holds back bursting into laughter.

The video has been seen almost 6 million times since its November 24 posting, garnering 1.3 million likes and thousands of comments praising his daughter’s self-care intuitions and being a great dad.
