Twisted Star Martini

Inspired by the popular Porn Star Martini cocktail, but recreated with a sous vide twisted!

by Elspeth Twist

This simple sweet and fruity cocktail is a great twist on a modern classic. Enjoy a delicious shot of passion fruit and vanilla infused vodka, served with a glass of prosecco.


4 passion fruit
1 vanilla pod
4 tbs sugar
350 ml vodka
Prosecco to serve


Preheat your sous vide water bath to 58ºC (137ºF).

Halve the passion fruit and scoop out the inner pulp and seeds then add them to a sous vide bag with the sugar.

Halve a vanilla pod and add to the bag. I prefer not to scrape out the seeds so that the vanilla is not too overpowering.

Add the vodka to the bag and remove as much air as possible then place the bag in the water bath and leave to infuse for two hours.

After two hours transfer the bag to ice water to cool for one hour then strain the mixture into a clean bottle. Press the pulp to extract as much liquid as possible.

To Serve

Shake the infused vodka bottle and fill a shot glass with the infused vodka and serve with a glass of prosecco.
