No, the Pornstar Martini isn't technically a Martini - it's a bawdy mix of vanilla vodka, passionfruit liqueur and passionfruit purée served with a sidecar of bubbly, and it's a hell of a lot of fun. In honour of National Pornstar Martini Day on 6 September (yup, it's a thing), here are four of our fave riffs on this saucy serve.
Take ya Pornstar to brunch: swap the peach purée in a Bellini for the signature passionfruit of a PSM, then add a few extra touches to kick things up a notch. So good, you'll wanna go bottomless.
10ml passionfruit liqueur
10ml vanilla vodka
10ml vanilla syrup
7.5ml lime juice
Scrape the seeds of the passionfruit half into an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Add the passionfruit liqueur, vanilla vodka, vanilla syrup and lime juice, then shake. Double strain into a Champagne glass and top with the sparkling stuff.
How to make the Pornstar Martini even flashier? Turn it into a slushie and add something pink, of course. Best served poolside.
1 bottle of rosé
350ml passionfruit juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
40ml sugar syrup
Sparkling rosé (optional)
Passionfruit, for garnish
Freeze the rosé overnight in ice cube trays. Add the frozen rosé cubes and all the other ingredients except the garnish to a blender, then give that baby a whirl until the drink is a thick slush. Serve in a coupe glass with an extra splash of sparkling rosé if you're feelin' flash, then garnish with half a passionfruit.

This sleek twist on the Pornstar comes from the lads at Homeboy, North London's epic Irish boozer. It's perfect for both serious cocktail connoisseurs and peeps who just wanna have fun, as it's got all the awesome flavour of the original plus a herbal boost from Yellow Chartreuse and a bitter kick from Aperol.
20ml Grey Goose Vanilla
20ml Yellow Chartreuse
20ml apple juice
20ml passionfruit purée
10ml sugar syrup
Combine all the ingredients in an ice-filled shaker and shake it, baby. Strain into a coupe glass and serve.
Like things smoky? Try swapping out the vodka for mezcal and thank us later.
