FAQ's

ORIGINS_HISTORY

What is the origin of the Pornstar Martini?

The Pornstar Martini was created in 2002 by bartender Douglas Ankrah at the Townhouse Bar in London.

The cocktail quickly gained popularity for its exotic flavors and vibrant presentation.

GARNISHING_TIPS

What are the recommended garnishes for a Pornstar Martini?

A typical garnish for a Pornstar Martini includes half a passion fruit floated on top of the drink and served with a shot of champagne or prosecco on the side. The passion fruit not only accents the drink's tropical flavor but also adds an elegant visual appeal.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

How is a Pornstar Martini traditionally served?

How does the alcohol content of a Pornstar Martini compare to other classic cocktails?

With an alcohol content of approximately 20.63%, the Pornstar Martini falls into the moderate range of alcohol content for cocktails. It is slightly lower in alcohol content compared to a traditional martini or Manhattan, which usually range from 25% to 30% alcohol by volume, but is stronger than many fruit-based or tropical drinks.

INGREDIENT_SPECIFICS

Can I use any type of champagne or prosecco with a Pornstar Martini?
