A bold passion fruit & vanilla martini.
Based on the (im)famous Pornstar Martini created by Douglas Ankrah of the famous Lab Bar in London with some local (South African) roots. The cocktail was apparently inspired by a drink Ankrah tried at a “louche gentlemen’s club” called Mavericks while visiting Cape Town in South Africa in 2002.
Ankrah wanted to create a drink that was “bold, sexy and playful”. “The drink is very evocative and tantalizing. He called it Pornstar because he thought it was something that a pornstar would drink!
FA Passion remains the king of passion fruit despite various johnny-come-lately's. It is simply pure, unadulterated passion fruit bliss.
VT Yellow Passion bolsters FA but adding a touch of body & oomph to the passion fruit layer without distraction.
Like FA Passion, INW Shisha Vanilla reigns supreme in this highly contested flavour category. I have NEVER pushed it this high but needed it to punch through the astringency of the passion fruit. At 2.5% it delivers a delightful vanilla layer, complimenting the passion fruit beautifully.
Citrus soda is used sparklingly to replicate the delicate martini vibe.
Sweeten & cool to taste.
