Pornstar Martini

This Pornstar Martini has to be the current “in” Cocktail and is made with Passion Fruit, Vodka & Champagne (traditionally anyway, but we cheat as many others do and use Prosecco)…

Pornstar Martini @ Cocktail Central Windermere
Trending here is the Pornstar Martini..

Made with Absolut Vanilla Vodka, Pessoa, Prosecco and a squeeze of lime juice the Pornstar Martini is outselling all other cocktails here in Windermere village and Bowness. It’s a little sweet but the blends and tones compliment each other nicely.

There are a few variations of the presentation, with some bars presenting the Fizz in a side glass, but we like this recipe for its ease and practicality:

Mojito

Mojito Cocktail
The Mojito

Description:

The Mojito is a blend of white rum, fresh lime juice and soda water. The purity of this particular cocktail comes from the way the oils are extracted from the peel of the lime. Soda water and fresh mint complete this very popular cocktail.

Ingredients:

– Fresh Lime
– Fresh Mint
– White Rum
– Soda Water
– Ice

Method:

Using the palm of your hand roll the lime on your worktop, this will generate the essential skin oils required. Cut a slice approximately 1 cm thick and quarter it. Add this to your highball glass.

Then, add in to this 7 or 8 ‘rubbed’ mint leaves (not the stalks), and some sugar.  Use a muddle to press the lime pieces, sugar and mint leaves together to create a syrup in the base of the glass.

Add in the white rum, fill the glass three quarters full with crushed ice and top with soda water. Gently stir the drink and garnish with more lime and mint.

Enjoy!
