Why You Will Love This Recipe

Have you ever heard of a Pornstar Martini?

If not, let me introduce you to a very unique, flavorful, and fruity Pornstar Martini Cocktail.

Sometimes called a passion star martini, this drink is a popular and trendy cocktail known for its exotic flavors and eye-catching presentation. It has gained considerable popularity in recent years, both for its unique taste and its provocative name.

This cocktail is made with fresh passion fruit, passion fruit liqueur, vanilla vodka, and served alongside sparkling wine.

The taste of the pornstar martini is a delightful blend of sweet and tangy flavors. The passion fruit provides a tropical and slightly tart note, while the vanilla syrup adds a touch of sweetness. The vodka gives the cocktail a smooth and alcoholic base, and the lime juice adds a refreshing citrusy kick.

It is just BEAUTIFUL and a delicious drink to serve up at parties and holiday events.

The presentation of the pornstar martini is an essential part of its appeal. The vibrant orange color of the cocktail, along with the garnish and accompanying shot of champagne, creates an enticing visual experience.

Here is what you need to make this beautiful and unique recipe for pornstar martini drink:

Passion Fruit – a fresh passion fruit is best but you can also use passion fruit juice or passion fruit purée

Vanilla Vodka – regular vodka can work but you lose a little sweetness

Passoa Liqueur – Passoa is a passionfruit liqueur which adds to the flavor, but the fresh fruit still shines through. This could be skipped and instead you can use a half of a passion fruit pulp scooped into the shaker – you will still have a great cocktail!

Lime Juice – fresh lime juice is best

Prosecco – Prosecco is an Italian sweeter sparkling wine and traditional for this drink. But you could use any other sparkling wine or champagne as desired.

Simple Syrup – a sugar syrup you can easily make at home or buy

Fresh passion fruit can be a little tricky and a little expensive compared to other options, but they are delicious! Look for them in your exotic produce section.

Can’t find the fresh fruit? Look for a passion fruit puree. A juice could work, however they are typically mainly a different fruit and a lot of sugar. The closest you can get to the fresh fruit the better.


Here is a list of the gear you need to make this drink:

  • Martini Glasses – a chilled cocktail glass is best!
  • Jigger
  • Cocktail Shaker
  • Tall Shot Glass
  • Knife
  • Cutting Board

Instruction Overview

How do you make Pornstar Martini? First scoop out some of the fruit from the rind and put it in a cocktail shaker with some ice.

Add the vanilla vodka, passoa liqueur, simple syrup, and lime juice. Add plenty of ice. Shake until really cold.

Strain into the martini glass and add a passionfruit half to float on top of the drink.

Serve alongside a tall shot of prosecco sparkling wine.

What in the World is with the Name?

I thought the same thing…strange name for a cocktail!

But the cheeky name has nothing to do with porn stars.

The drink’s name “pornstar martini” was chosen to evoke a sense of indulgence and seduction, and to challenge traditional cocktail naming conventions. It was intended to be bold, daring, and provocative, much like the world of adult entertainment it references.

The origins of the pornstar martini recipe can be traced back to the early 2000s in London, England. The original pornstar martini is one of Douglas Ankrah’s cocktails, a renowned mixologist who was looking to develop a cocktail that would stand out from the crowd.

Serving the Martini

There are a couple specific suggestions for serving this Porn Star Martini.

First, it is served up in a coupe glass. Coupe glasses are traditionally meant for sparkling wine. Which, funny enough, is served alongside the drink but in a cordial glass. Just breaking all the rules here!

Also, there is supposed to be a half of a passion fruit floating in the drink. Seems a little unnecessary with how expensive passion fruit can be, but it is oh-so-pretty!

How to Drink Pornstar Martini

How do you drink a Pornstar Martini? The “original” way to drink this was by going back and forth between the cocktail and the sidecar of champagne.

However it is very common that people decide to dump the sparkling wine into the martini itself.

Do whatever sounds yummy!

Modifications and Substitutions

A fresh passion fruit can be difficult to come by, and sometimes expensive. Cut back on the amount you use by substituting passion fruit puree for what is mixed in the shaker, and you can also skip the floating fruit half.

Prosecco is a sweet sparkling wine from Italy. You can swap it out for any sparkling wine (sweet is better than brut/dry).

No vanilla vodka? You can use regular with a very small dash of vanilla extract.

Kim’s Tips

The main passion fruit martini can be made in advance, but do not pour the prosecco until serving so that it stays bubbly.

There are many ways to swap out ingredients to make this cocktail more budget friendly. See the modifications and substitutions section for more details.


Why is it called a Pornstar Martini?

The creator of the cocktail wanted something that sounded exotic. And thought that it was something a pornstar would drink.

Do you shoot the prosecco or pour it in?

How do you drink a Pornstar Martini? You can do it either day! It was originally designed to stay on the side.

Are you meant to shoot the Prosecco?

While this is how it was originally meant to be, it does not matter! You can shoot it, sip it, or even mix it into the martini.

    I always loved the name of this cocktail. Porn star martini isn’t something I can tell our kiddos we’re drinking, but drink it I will! Passoa is being phased out here and I can’t seem to find it as readily as in the past, so I have to stock up so I can make this drink in the future.

  9. Haha I love the name! This sounds absolutely exquisite honestly and I have passionfruit so I will definitely be giving this a go. Cheers!
