Crystal head pornstar martini

When it comes to cocktails, Jasmine Hamlin, head bartender at Harvey Nichols in Bristol, isn’t afraid to give an old favourite a shake up (ahem). “The Pornstar Martini is a real modern classic, and probably one of the most successful cocktails to have been invented in the 21st century,” she says. “To give this crowd-pleasing blend a Harvey Nichols twist, we have used premium Crystal Head vodka, which is made of four-times-distilled ‘peaches and cream’ corn and then filtered seven times through Herkimer diamonds, which makes the vodka perfectly smooth and creamy. “Using this particular vodka gives a well-balanced finish to the cocktail, as it complements the tartness of the passion fruit. The shot of Harvey Nichols Brut Champagne is also a great addition, as it’s slightly dryer than the traditionally used Prosecco.”
