Bartender-owned treats for World Bartender Day – new podcast season

ByThe Cocktail Lovers

SHARE

What better time to kick off the brand new season of The Cocktail Lovers podcast than the eve of World Bartender Day? To celebrate, we’re focusing on bartender-owned treats, starting with our choice of cocktail to kick off proceedings: the totally tropical, crowd-pleasing Porn Star Martini created in London by the late, very great Douglas Ankrah.

Then it’s on to our two product choices – a non-alcoholic aperitivo called Amarico made in Italy and Orange Botanical Liqueur ‘Triple Sec’ from the Aperitivo Co based in Bristol. Our bar review finds us soaking up the good times and great cocktails on the menu at Joe and Dan Schofield’s eponymous hot spot in Manchester and our reading matter is Lauren Mote’s A Bartender’s Guide To The World – cocktails and stories from 75 places.

Lastly, we’re joined by Giacomo Giannotti and Margarita Sader from Paradiso in Barcelona, currently number one in The World’s 50 Best Bars list.

World Bartender Day is on 24th February 2023 #worldbartenderday

The Cocktail Lovers podcast, Episode 1, Season 5 – listen here!

What we’re mixing:

Porn Star Martini

2 Martini glasses, preferably frozen, and tall shot glasses for Champagne on the side

80ml vanilla vodka
15ml Passoa (passionfruit liqueur)
Flesh and seeds of 4 passionfruit
5 teaspoons vanilla sugar
100ml Champagne
1 passionfruit, halved
Hard ice cubes

Method:
Shake all the ingredients except the Champagne, the halved passionfruit and 1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar in a Boston shaker, then strain into Martini glasses. Separately, pour out 2 glasses of Champagne and dust the halved passionfruit with the remaining sugar. Dunk the passionfruit in the Martini glasses, with spoons: the idea is to fish out the fruit, eat it with the spoon, drink the Champagne and then enjoy the cocktail at leisure.
