The name has proved to be fairly controversial, in interviews, Ankrah has stated that he used the “porn star” name to create a “stylish and confident drink…[that’s]…pure indulgence, sexy, fun and evocative”. The cocktail was originally named the Maverick Martini, named after a gentleman’s club, but was later changed. The drink has seen astronomical growth in the U.K especially. You can even find premixed cans at some liquor stores.

Recipe Notes and FAQ’s

I don’t have Vanilla Vodka. What do I do?

It’s ok, you don’t really need it. Regular vodka will suffice. You can just add some vanilla extract.

I can’t find passion fruit. Where can I find it?

Passion fruit is located in the produce section of most decent size grocery stores, specifically the exotic produce aisle/table/display, etc. If your local grocery store does not carry passion fruit, there are several store-bought purees you can substitute with. For example, Monin Passion Fruit Puree, which is available on amazon.
