I am as blown away by this cocktail as you are. Yes, this is real. Anything with porn star in the name needs to be talked about more. I made a porn star martini for Patty as a wild experiment and she loved it. Its intense tropical taste and aroma, paired with vanilla, will take you straight to a Caribbean island. I will stand here and admit, it’s a pretty solid cocktail, and unlike anything I’ve ever had.

The porn star martini (also known as the passionfruit martini) is a modern day tropical cocktail made with fresh passion fruit juice, vanilla vodka, simple syrup, and fresh lime juice. It’s typically served with an ounce or two of prosecco or Champagne on the side. It’s become really popular in the UK since it hit the scene in the early 2,000’s—mainly because of the ostentatious name and presentation.

What Is a Porn Star Martini?

Okay, so let’s strip this cocktail down for you ?

There are several variations of the cocktail on the internet. It’s hard to tell what is exactly “right” but I tried to simplify the martini as best I could so it’s more manageable to make at home. It’s already a little demanding with fresh passion fruit juice…but I promise that’s the only obscure ingredient I’ll make you find.

Traditionally the drink is make with vodka and vanilla syrup (simple syrup infused with real vanilla or vanilla extract). To simplify the recipe, I used vanilla vodka and regular simple syrup. I think this adds any and all vanilla flavor the drink needs.

Lastly, several porn star martini recipes call for Passoa Passion Fruit Liqueur. Another additional element I’m leaving out and relying solely on fresh passion fruit juice. Fresh passion fruit juice is a powerful and highly concentrated juice with tart notes and a subtle sweet finish. The additional simple syrup will balance out the drink and deliver a more mild passion fruit flavor.

How to Juice a Passion Fruit

To make 1 cocktail, you will need about 2 passion fruits. I was able extract about 1 1/2 ounces of passion fruit juice (puree) from 2 passion fruits. 3 passion fruits is enough for 2 cocktails.

Cut a passion fruit in half and spoon out the pulp/seeds into a fine mesh sieve. Use a muddler or a spoon to crush the pulp into the strainer, separating the juices. It looks a lot like OJ and will be a concentrated and deep golden juice.

Can I Make This with Any Passion Fruit Juice?

If you can’t find real passion fruits then you can substitute with store-bought passion fruit juice or puree. It just may be even harder to find to be honest. Be mindful of any added sugars as you don’t want the juice or the cocktail to be too sweet. I think Goya and Simply Squeeze brands make mixers you can buy.

Don’t forget to serve with a chilled shot of prosecco, it’s all part of the presentation of this one. I don’t think they’re meant to be mixed but hey this is your party and you can do what you like.
