Have you ever heard of a Pornstar Martini?
If not, let me introduce you to a very unique, flavorful, and fruity cocktail.
The pornstar martini 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
- Vanilla Vodka
- Passoa Liqueur
- Lime Juice
- Simple Syrup
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.
Passoa is a passion fruit liqueur which adds to the flavor, but the fresh fruit still shines through.
Here is a list of the gear you need to make this drink:
- Martini Glass
- Cocktail Shaker
- Tall Shot Glass
- Cutting Board
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. Shake until really cold.
Strain into the martini glass and add a half of a passion fruit to float on top.
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 name has nothing to do with porn stars.
The 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 can be traced back to the early 2000s in London, England. It was created by renowned mixologist Douglas Ankrah, 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 sparkling wine.
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.
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.
The creator of the cocktail wanted something that sounded exotic. And thought that it was something a pornstar would drink.
How do you drink a Pornstar Martini? You can do it either day! It was originally designed to stay on the side.
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.
For this pornstar martini, you need:
Passoa Liqueur (Passion Fruit Liqueur)
It is a passion fruit flavored liqueur
For the pornstar martini, just cut it in half and let it float in the drink!
It is sweet with a little hint of tartness.
