Douglas Ankrah invented the Pornstar Martini

Ghanaian-born businessman Douglas Ankrah invented the Pornstar Martini in 2003 while working at his Townhouse cocktail bar in Knightsbridge.

The cocktail includes a blend of vanilla vodka, fresh passion fruit, passion fruit liqueur, vanilla syrup, and lime juice, plus a side shot of Prosecco.

Since its inception, the Pornstar Martini has been regularly featured on top cocktail lists and this month it was revealed as the world’s most popular cocktail, according to Google search data.

There were more than 18.4 million searches worldwide for Pornstar Martini, with the Piña Colada, the best in America, in second place with 10.5 million searches and the Aperol Spritz in third with more than 8 , 2 million registered searches.

The top-ranked drink was invented by Ankrah, who came up with the name ‘Pornstar Martini’ after a trip to a gentlemen’s club in Cape Town.

The data showed that the UK is one of the many countries where the Pornstar Martini is the most sought after and the most requested cocktail in Africa.

Ankrah was also known for being a co-founder of the London Academy of Bartenders (Lab), based in Soho.

Lab opened in 1999 and was originally a training school for bartenders, but it became one of London’s most popular cocktail venues and a training ground for some of the industry’s top bartenders.

The bar closed in 2016 and became the site of the award-winning Swift Bar.

Tributes have been paid to the influential entrepreneur by industry experts around the world.
