Cocktails the Musical

In a piano bar at night, a guy, who refers himself as a "Mixologist", just accompanied the last customer to the door and locked it. He rushes back to the counter bar and begins to make a special cocktail that he uses to make for a very special customer, however, he cannot remember the recipe. As he's singing "Making it right", he tries to figure it out how to recreate this special cocktail. Unconcernedly, his farang imaginary friend appears to accompany him at the piano. After they argue about the later's appearing, we learn how important this special cocktail is. 
It was a couple weeks ago a sad young businessman came here for a drink. His melancholy touched the mixologist deeply, so he created this special cocktail for him as a remedy. The mix was so good and it led them into intimate relations. In the morning, the businessman left him a note saying he had to go for a business trip for two weeks and he would come back for him.
Tonight is the night. 
Out of his imaginary friend's curiosity, he explains what significant about this man and his expectation in him; "Home". 
But the real question is where is he now; "What is he doing now?".
The imaginary friend tries to remind him about his past, all failed relationships. They compare his ex-es with cocktails, some are too sour, too sweet, too bland or too strong; "Cocktails".
But this time he feel so sure about this guy and he ready to take a chance; "I'm ready".
His feeling of wanting to be with this guy is so overwhelming, and because of this he finally recreates the exact special cocktail.
The cocktail is ready, but how about the guy?

They would remain Jonas' mentor until his admission in the prestigious Brussels Royal Conservatory of Music, in the class of renown musicians Dominique Cornil and Muhiddin Demiriz-Dürrüolgu.
