Frozen Pornstar Martinis are the newest cocktail craze to hit the capital, and it’s all thanks to Victoria’s loveliest restaurant, Aster.
Made with vanilla vodka, coconut syrup, passion fruit purée and lime juice, Aster’s frozen Pornstar Martini is in an entire league of its own.
After a three-course meal at Aster, it’s easy to be fooled into thinking that things just can’t get any better. I say this because – after a beautiful Brixham crab starter, followed by a glorious Rib Eye steak with truffle potatoes and the most delicious strawberry and caramel cheesecake I’ve ever had – I believed my life had truly peaked. But then! THEN! the sorbet cocktail menu appeared; like an angel at the end of an already bright tunnel. Lo and behold, there was a fourth and final course to be had.
We were handed an entire menu of sorbet cocktails, including the Pear & Apple Sorbet with pear vodka, fresh orange and cinnamon syrup, and the Berry Sorbet with vodka, pineapple juice, vanilla syrup and lemon juice. But the Pornstar Sorbet was the clear winner. And winning, it was.
I haven’t stopped telling people about this new discovery of mine. I wanted to shout it from the rooftops or take a megaphone onto the tube. But then I remembered that I write for Secret London, a website that some people sometimes read, so here we are…
DRINK THE DAMN COCKTAILS. THEY ARE REALLY BLOODY DELICIOUS.
Believe it or not though, Aster isn’t all about the cocktails. They also have a fantastic all-day dining menu, which I gently touched on above, a stunning Scandinavian brunch menu ft. bottomless rosé, as well as their famous Crayfish Fridays. Head over to Aster’s website to reserve a table for any of these experiences. (Please note: the sorbet cocktails, the bottomless brunches and the crayfish are only available until the end of August – so you’d better get going because, like I said, THEY ARE REALLY BLOODY DELICIOUS.)
