Porn Star Martini

Porn Star Martini at Suffolk Arms

This ostentatious, two-vessel assemblage—vodka, passion fruit, lime and vanilla in one glass, a shot of sparkling rosé Champagne on the side—was a sensation at London’s Townhouse and its sister bar, LAB, in the early 2000s. Its fame was doubtless spurred along by its provocative name. Though once widely drunk in the U.K., its inclusion on the cocktail list at Suffolk Arms may well be its New York debut.

FROM AROUND THE WEB
  • That thing in the center is a slice of passion fruit? Interesting.

    Also, what is vanilla sugar? Can you point me to a recipe that is most like what you would put in this cocktail?

    Thanks!

      I’d recommend using a simple syrup and infusing it with a few vanilla beans. just measure to your own personal taste

    • Chaste Baster

      Torani does a vanilla syrup, but david makes a good rec too.
