Have you ever heard of a Pornstar Martini?
If not, let me introduce you to a very unique, flavorful, and fruity cocktail.
This cocktail is made with fresh passion fruit, passion fruit liqueur, vanilla vodka, and served alongside sparkling wine.
It is just BEAUTIFUL and a delicious drink to serve up at parties and holiday events.
Passion Fruit Ingredients
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.
Passoa is a passion fruit liqueur which adds to the flavor, but the fresh fruit still shines through.
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.
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. Apparently, the creator of the cocktail wanted something that sounded exotic.
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!
What Do I Do with the Champagne?
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!
- 2 passion fruit
- 2 ounces vanilla vodka
- ½ ounce passoa liquor (passion fruit liquor)
- ½ ounce simple syrup
- ½ lime
- 2 ounces champagne (more or less as desired)
- Scoop out the insides of 1 ½ passion fruit and place in a cocktail shaker. Add some ice.
- To the cocktail shaker add the vanilla vodka, passoa, simple syrup, and juice from ½ lime. Shake 30 seconds to chill.
- Pour into a coupe glass. Float the remaining ½ passion fruit on top.
- Serve alongside a cordial or tall shot glass filled with sparkling wine. Serve immediately.
