Sienna Murdoch creates a cocktail inspired by Gary Webb's 'Dreamy Bathroom'.

Gary Webb, Dreamy Bathroom, 2014

Dreamy Bathroom (White Russian)

It has been great to make Gary Webb’s Dreamy Bathroom, quite literally, with obscene, opaque and top-heavy garnishes stacked on top of each other. The result is a Vegas style White Russian, that is fun to build and fun to watch fall apart.


Full fat milk
100ml Chilled Brewed Coffee
50ml Kahlua
Whipped cream
Cinnamon stick
Pink marshmallow
Maraschino cherry
25ml Vodka
Splash of brandy
Sundae glass
Ice for mixing


  1. Mix the brewed coffee with the Kahlua and pour into large, square ice cube moulds and freeze until completely frozen.
  2. In a large glass, stir the milk, vodka and brandy.
  3. Stack the coffee ice cubes into the sundae glass and pour the cocktail mix until you can see just the top of the ice cubes.
  4. Arrange and balance the garnishes one on top of the other - finishing with the whipped cream.
  5. Serve with a spoon and a straw.
