When the Porn Star Martini was created in 2002 by Douglas Ankrah in London, few would have believed what a cultural icon it would become. The recipe has evolved over time but retains the essence of the Townhouse original.

Following in the footsteps of provocatively named cocktails like the Sex on the Beach, Screaming Orgasm (and may others too offensive to mention), the Porn Star Martini’s combination of passionfruit and vanilla with a side of bubbles is far more sophisticated than its name suggests.

Porn Star Martini Ingredients

  • 1 Fresh Passionfruit
  • 1½oz (45ml) Vanilla Vodka
  • ½oz (15ml) Passoa passionfruit liqueur
  • ½oz (15ml) Vanilla Syrup
  • ½oz (15ml) Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1oz (30ml) Champagne

How to make a Porn Star Martini

Scoop the flesh from the passionfruit into your Boston glass, add all ingredients except the Champagne and shake with cubed ice. Double strain into a chilled Cocktail glass and serve the Champagne in a chilled shooter glass on the side.porn-star-martini-pin

Depending on the quality and price point of the venue, you may find this drink made with regular vodka and relying on the vanilla syrup for these notes. Others may use passionfruit juice instead of the fresh fruit or serve Cava, Prosseco or other sparkling wine instead of the Champagne. At the end of the day, cocktails will always change and evolve, but as long as you end up with a great tasting drink in your hand and your guests are having a great time, who cares!
