This Pornstar Martini is a delicious cocktail made with passion fruit! Learn all about what this cocktail is below to serve up something fun!
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 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.
Here is what you need to make this beautiful and unique cocktail recipe:
- 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.
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.
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. 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!
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.
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.
- Martini Glass
- Tall Shot Glass
- 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.

It is summer here in Australia, so this made the perfect drink for New Years Eve!!!
Man it was delicious!
We made it in pitchers and it worked well 🙂
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.
We had these at New Year’s and they were a hit. So good! I know they’ll be deliciously refreshing over the summer, too.
Haha I love the name! This sounds absolutely exquisite honestly and I have passionfruit so I will definitely be giving this a go. Cheers!
I made your martinis for my party last night and they were a big hit! Everyone wanted to know how I made them and loved the name!
