It’s time to celebrate one of the UK’s most famous cocktails…
There’s been no stopping the rise of the Pornstar Martini! Named the nation's favourite cocktail in 2017, and the most ordered drink of the year, the sweet cocktail became a viral hit with products ranging from giant sharing versions of the cocktail, all the way to spreadable cocktail jam and Yankee Candles with the Pornstar Martini flavour.
As party season approaches, we’re celebrating the drink, alongside the classic vodka cocktail which surged in popularity during the 80’s fruity cocktail revival, Sex on the Beach.
Our November Tipple Box features England’s Renaissance Vodka and contains everything you need to enjoy the trendy Pornstar Martini and the classic Sex on the Beach at home.
This Month’s Cocktails
One of the newest cocktail inventions, the Pornstar Martini has become a UK phenomenon in recent years.
Created in 2002 by bartender Douglas Ankrah from The Townhouse in Knightsbridge, the original cocktail recipe combined vanilla vodka, passion fruit liqueur, passion fruit, sugar syrup and lime juice with a side of Champagne.
Originally named the Maverick Martini, the Pornstar Martini name was adopted by Douglas due to the cocktail’s ‘evocative and tantalising’ style.
Sex on the Beach
The earliest Sex on the Beach recipe dates back to the 1980s.
Featured in the American Bartenders School Book, the theory behind the invention of the cocktail is believed to have been when a bartender combined a Fuzzy Navel (orange juice and peach schnapps with a Cape Codder (vodka, cranberry and lime).
The fruity and all too easy-to-drink cocktail became popular during the 80s as tall and fruity drinks were all the range, with the sweet fruit flavours masking the alcoholic kick.
Inside November’s Tipple Box
Renaissance Vodka makes the perfect cocktail addition to our Pornstar Martini and Sex on the Beach with its light, creamy flavours providing an extremely smooth sip.

Handcrafted in small batches, Friary’s passion fruit liqueur provides a strong fruity taste adding an extra kick to our Pornstar Martini.

Using fresh peaches, Friary’s peach liqueur has a fruity yet slightly floral taste, uplifting the flavour of our Sex on the Beach.

A staple ingredient to any Sex on the Beach, Cranberry juice has a dry, tangy bite with Frobishers juice made from an autumn cranberry crop harvested in North America and Canada.
