With this being the most popular cocktail currently being served in bars and events across the UK, at The Bar Guys we wanted to give you the ULTIMATE Porn Star Martini recipe and clear up some of your most commonly asked questions along the way.

What is in a name?
According to Douglas Ankrah, the inventor of the Porn Star Martini it has nothing to do with porn stars and everything to do with a trip he made to a bar in South Africa in the 90’s which served as the inspiration for the drink. He wanted a name for the drink that was indulgent, sexy and provocative.

Didn’t that Kate Middleton drink it at her hen do? It must be nice.
According to the tabloids, The Duchess Of Cambridge did in fact drink porn star martinis at her hen party.

Do you have to be a pornstar to drink it?
Clearly not if it’s drunk by royalty.

Why are there two drinks in a porn star martini?
A porn star martini is served with a shot of prosecco or champagne alongside it.

Cool. Shots!
Hmmm. Not exactly. The prosecco is there to compliment the martini. But you can shoot it. It’s complicated.

Right. You’ve lost me.
The main part of the drink is a passion fruit martini. It has a shot of prosecco or champagne alongside it and is garnished with half a passion fruit which floats in the martini.

Okay. Why the hell is there a teaspoon in my passion fruit martini then?
To eat the passion fruit with.

So there’s three parts to this drink?
Yep.

Right. Okay. So what order do I do this in?
THE most frequent question you will be asked as a bartender: What order do I drink my pornstar? And in bars all across the land mixologists say the same thing: It’s up to you. The truth is there is no hard and fast rule.

Alright. So how would YOU drink it then?
Aha. Now we are getting somewhere. Personally, I eat a small piece of the passion fruit, followed by a sip of the prosecco and I finish on the sweet and zesty martini..Mmmmmm.

This sounds good. Recipe please!
Sure. And I’ll make this even easier and throw in some links!
