People Are Confused About 'Proper Way' To Drink Pornstar Martinis
An expert has revealed the proper way to consume the cocktails...
Even though it's one of the most popular cocktails in the whole of the UK, apparently many of us don’t know the correct way to consume our pornstar martinis.
With its zingy combination of passionfruit, vanilla, lime, sugar and Prosecco, since its creation by bar owner Douglas Ankrah in 2002 the dink has become a firm favourite among cocktail aficionados the world over - so much so that it's even been reimagined as a cheesecake!
But despite its wild populariy, there remains a point of confusion - what exactly are you meant to do with the baby shot of Prosecco served alongside it?
Well, thankfully, that question has now been answered. Speaking to LADBible, Abby Matthews, Director of The Cocktail Co, has put an end to the debate over whether you’re supposed to shot the Prosecco or pour it straight into your glass.
She said: “A pornstar martini is the perfect combination of passionfruit, vanilla, vodka and citrus, so it has a very sweet yet tangy flavour.
“It is served best with a Prosecco chaser (usually a milder drink that is designed to freshen the palette) and garnished with half a passionfruit.”
Abby explains a chaser is a drink of a different kind taken immediately after or before another drink.
She continued: "Little do people know, the Prosecco shot should actually be sipped before drinking the pornstar martini, to cleanse the palette before enjoying the cocktail.
“If you’ve been shotting the Prosecco before, after, or even pouring it in - you’re doing it wrong!
“Pouring the Prosecco can actually ruin the flavours - it alters the taste as it unbalances how the ingredients complement each other.”
She added: “And drinking it after - well, who’d want to cleanse their palette after such a delicious drink?”
So there you have it! And if all this talk of pornstar martinis has got you planning for the weekend, Giraffe Cocktails are also selling a five litre keg of Pornstar Martini for £99.99.
Coming in at 8% ABV, the tropical delight is made with vanilla vodka, aromatic passionfruit and finished with an added twist of fresh pineapple.
The company also sells a whole keg of delicious pre-mixed Espresso Martinis!
Packing a whopping five litres of gloriously indulgent cocktail, the keg will set you back £112, but as it contains roughly 35 servings that works out at around £3.20 per drink - so a fair bit cheaper than going out!
According to the description, the keg contains a blend of deep and flavourful coffee cocktail finished with a generous serving of premium vodka. It’s made using a cold brew espresso, so the finish is strong-tasting and harmonises beautifully with the sweet liqueur. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
