Want to try making Pornstar Martini? Below is a quick recipe.
60ml/ 4 fresh passion fruit
100ml vodka or vanilla vodka
2 tbs passion fruit liqueur
1 tbs lime juice or more to taste
1 tsp sugar syrup (optional – adjust to taste)
A drop of vanilla extract (leave out if using vanilla vodka)
Chilled Champagne or Prosecco to serve on the side
1 fresh passion fruit, sliced or halved to garnish.
Put two Martini glasses in the freezer to chill.
Slice the passion fruit and scoop out the seeds into a small sieve set over a cocktail shaker. Press on the seeds with the back of a spoon to extract the juice. For a lazier option, scoop the passion fruit fresh directly into the shaker.
Half fill the cocktail shaker with cubed ice. Add the vodka, passion fruit liqueur, lime juice, sugar syrup and vanilla extract. Sshake hard for 30 seconds.
Dip a straw into your drink and have a taste. Is it too sweet or too sour? Adjust by adding lime juice or sugar syrup as needed.
Double strain the drink into the chilled cocktail glasses and garnish with a thin slice of passion fruit.
Serve with shots of chilled Prosecco or Champagne on the side.
