Cocktail with Passion – Passion Pornstar Martini

History of Pornstar Martini Cocktail

The classic cocktail was mixed first by the legendary Douglas Ankrah in Capetown in South Africa. He actually named the mixed drink a Maverick Martini. He then changed the name to Pornstar Martini because of all the passion he put in the drink.

Fun fact: 

When you order a Pornstar Martini you get a half passionfruit aside, a glass of bobles (originally champagne) and then the actual cocktail. The idea is that you begin by eating the  half passionfruit. Then you drink the Champagne. At last you enjoy the passionfruit martini. Many cocktail bars will skip serving the champagne and half passionfruit. Simply because it makes the cocktail more expensive to serve.

Fun fact:

You can actually make this classic cocktail with different spirits without any major troubles. Let’s say you don’t have any Vodka. Then we recommend you substitute with white rum, dark rum or tequila. All of them will work quite well. You can even make it with gin or whisky. If you don’t have any other spirits. Why is that? The taste of the passionfruit will dominate the taste. The other spirits will only bring different notes to the cocktail. It’s actually a nice twist if you for example try it out with either rum or tequila.

Pornstar Martini Cocktail recipe


  • 4 cl Vodka 🍸
  • 1,5 cl Gomme 🍯
  • 1,5 cl Passionfruit syrup
  • 2,5 cl Freshpressed lemon juice 🍋
  • 5 cl Passionfruit juice 🍹
  • Garnish with passionsfruit
  • Top with bobles (Cava, Prosecco or Champagne)

You also need these:

  • Martini Cocktail Glas
  • Icecubes
  • Cocktail Shaker (fitness shaker as an alternative)
  • Jigger (Or another measuring tool)
  • Strainer or Fine Strainer

How to make it:

  • Make sure you have everything mentioned above.
  • Start by cooling down your glassware. That’s done by putting ice cubes in them. It actually makes a  difference when sipping.
  • Pour the vodka in your cocktail shaker. You pour all ingredients in the Boston glas.
  • Now pour the passionsfruit juice, gomme, passionsfruit syrup and lemon juice down to the vodka.
  • Fill your cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
  • Now close the cocktail shaker by putting the tin on top of the Boston glas.
  • When the shaker is closed nicely then it’s shaking time! Wake up your inner Tom Cruise and shake it hard.👏🏽😎
  • You want to shake until you can feel the tin is chilled. Too much shaking will make it watery.
  • Now taste the cocktail with a straw. How does it taste? All good? Too sweet? Or too sour? Then adjust with gomme or lemon juice.
  • Empty your Martini glasses so there is no ice in them.
  • Now you need your strainer and fine strainer.
  • Now double strain the cocktail into your chilled martini glass.
  • Garnish with a passionfruit as shown on the picture above.
  • Top with Champagne etc. Champagne makes the world a better place so it’s really a delicious twist.
  • Serve, smile and scream CHEERS! 🍹 – It will only taste better if you are surrounded by people full of passion ! 😄👍🏼
