The Pornstar martini has been voted the UKs favourite cocktail and it’s definitely the top seller from our cocktail list but how should you drink a Pornstar Martini?

Who was the first to drink a Pornstar Martini?…

The drinks business website tells us that the cocktail was created in 2002 by bartender and LAB bar founder Douglas Ankrah at The Townhouse bar in Knightsbridge.  Ankrah first christened the cocktail the Maverick Martini, in a hat tip to a dodgy club in Cape Town, but changed the name to the Porn Star Martini.  The cocktail became a hit at the LAB bar and will be forever associated with the hip hangout.  “I called it the Porn Star Martini because I thought it was something that a porn star would drink. It’s pure indulgence, sexy, fun and evocative,” Ankrah told The Buyer in a recent interview.


So how do you drink a Pornstar martini?

We often get asked how you should drink a Pornstar martini, so we did a little research and the rules are…well, there are no rules!  It’s up to you how you prefer to enjoy it. how to drink a pornstar martini

We do, however, have some suggestions to help you decide:

  1. Sip the Prosecco shot alongside the main drink
  2. Down the Prosecco shot then enjoy the cocktail
  3. Tip the Prosecco shot into the cocktail

The Pornstar is a sweet cocktail, containing passion fruit liqueur, passion fruit puree, passion fruit syrup, vanilla syrup and vodka so our favourite way to drink it is tipping the prosecco into the cocktail to take the edge off the sweetness.  It’s all personal preference though so the most important thing is that you enjoy it!  Cheers!
