After my last post the lovely Peridot innocently asked what a Porn Star Martini was.
The short answer is the most delicious and bestest cocktail ever.
I discovered it on my amazing hen weekend last year in Obsidian in Manchester (now 24 Bar and Grill) and have been hooked ever since. It is scrummy, passion fruit based (hello fruit portion!) and comes with a shot of champagne on the side!
Here is its entry on the Obsidian menu:
PORN STAR MARTINI - Obsidian’s home-infused vanilla vodka, shaken with passion fruit, lemon, pineapple and sugar, served with half a passion fruit and a shot of Champagne on the side.
Tis marvy I tells ya!
I googled for a recipe (so much fun googling 'porn star' at work) and this is what came up:
Porn Star Martini
1 tbsp vanilla sugar
50 ml vanilla vodka
25 ml passionfruit liqueur
10 ml passionfruit puree
Squeeze of fresh lemon
Dash of pineapple juice
fresh passionfruit, to decorate
50 ml champagne
1. Put all ingredients except the champagne and the fresh passionfruit into a shaker.
2. Shake and strain into a martini glass. Decorate with half a passionfruit on top.
3. Prepare a 50mlshot glass and fill with champagne.
4. To drink, sip the martini and champagne and mix in the mouth.*
*Feel free to ignore this bit. If you are classy, like me, then you will simply down the champagne while giggling wildly.
