Bye bye Mojitos! The vanilla and passionfruit Pornstar Martini (also known as a passionfruit martini) has taken over as the number one selling cocktail in UK pubs and bars, according to CGA data.

Spirits company Pernod Ricard have been championing the drinks as a vehicle for its Absolute Vanilia vodka over the last 12 months.

Adam Boita, Head of Marketing for Pernod Ricard UK, said: "We have been tracking this fantastic cocktail's rise in popularity and are delighted it has finally been given the crown it so deserves.

"Consumers are looking more and more for experiences and the Porn Star Martini delivers this because of the theatre the serve provides. We have recently seen just how loved this drink is via our Porn Star Martini Townhouse at London Cocktail week, which welcomed over 900 consumers."

 

How to make a Pornstar Martini (makes two): 

 

  • 2 ripe passion fruits cut in half
  • 60ml vanilla vodka
  • 30ml passoa
