I get my hands on a porn star

So, porn stars? I can’t say they’ve ever really done anything for me. They always seem a bit dramatic and not necessarily that tasty.

But clearly I’ve been missing out.

My pal Emma and I were long overdue a catch-up. So after a little bit of a debate, we decided to take a trip to the Vine, in Leigh Road, Leigh-on-Sea.

The Vine bar is the perfect spot for a natter and a drink. With battered Chesterfields filling its windows (if you manage to bag one, DO NOT MOVE. They are practically never free. Ever.) and cocktails served by particularly cheerful staff (it’s entirely their fault we ended up so tipsy) its a cosy little cocoon away from the chilly, outside world.

It was here I was tempted by a porn star martini.

For the uninitiated, a porn star generally consists of passion fruit, vodka, lime juice, vanilla sugar syrup and Passoa Liqueur (that’s a liqueur of exotic passion fruits.) And a shot of Prosecco (Champagne if you’re feeling particularly extravagant.)

I think I’ve always been put off by the lump of passion fruit that often floats near the brim of your glass and by the fact the fizz is served in a shot glass, separate from the rest of your cocktail.

But this reservation was just silliness on my part. Having finally got to grips with one it’s clear porn stars are clearly the way forward.
