The name ‘Pornstar Martini’ is said to have been inspired by the passion fruit, which was seen as an exotic ingredient.
History of the Drink
The Pornstar Martini is a relatively new addition to the world of cocktails, having been invented in the early 2000s by bartender Douglas Ankrah at the Townhouse bar in London. Ankrah was looking for a way to put a modern and playful twist on the classic Martini. The result was the Pornstar Martini.
The cocktail quickly became a sensation in the UK and beyond, with its unique combination of sweet and tart flavors, including its signature garnish of a fresh Passion Fruit with a shot of Prosecco on the side.
The Pornstar Martini is a perfect example of how a creative bartender can take a classic cocktail and give it a modern twist. Its popularity is a testament to the enduring appeal of the Martini and the endless possibilities for innovation and experimentation in the world of cocktails.
