Why is it called a Pornstar Martini cocktail?
pornstar cocktail

The Pornstar Martini is so named because it has a sweet, fruity flavour that is reminiscent of the adult entertainment industry. The cocktail is also served with a shot of Prosecco on the side, which is meant to represent the champagne that is often associated with the industry.

The Pornstar Martini was invented by the owner of the famous LAB bar in London, Mr Douglas, who was inspired by his time at Mavericks, a well-known gentleman’s club in Cape Town. Originally called the Maverick Martini, Mr Douglas created the cocktail while working at the LAB bar in 2002, and since then it has become a popular drink worldwide. Mavericks in South Africa has even incorporated the Pornstar Martini into its menu and serves it to customers.
