Says Benedetto: “In 1994 Madonna released her 6th album Bedtime Stories. This album always stuck out to me as the first where Madonna was really herself the whole way through. She allows herself to be more exposed than previously and even collaborates with Björk on a track. The cocktail is a wild one. Like the album it’s all over the place. A stirred and exceptionally boozy cocktail, this is a great one to end your night. Visually the idea was to make it look sort of like the outer-body experience of dreaming while asleep – booze in a glass with an ice cube viewed through a surreal lens with an alien-like green hue and a purple halo. As you pick the drink up and set it down again the drink begins to blend but rather than just homogenizing, the butterfly pea flower reacts with Chartreuse miraculously creating a bright red.”
