Those who know me well will know that the Hoxton Hotel is one of my favourite places, especially for lunch on a Sunday, accompanied with many cocktails! One of the reasons I love it here, apart from the relaxed vibe, amazing service and tasty food, is the espresso martinis and the pornstar martinis.
I came for lunch today and ordered the pornstar only to find it tasted completely different and was in fact a lot smaller than usual (I’ve noticed this change in taste in a few places recently)! I mentioned this to the waitress and she informed me that the ingredients have changed and they’ve added pineapple 🍍 to it!
Why would they do this to such a perfect recipe you may ask!? I wondered the same and they had no reason but gave a lovely and heartfelt apology. I promptly re-ordered an original pornstar and they were happy to make this as a one off.
So next time you visit please make sure you do the same to avoid the surprise of a syrupy, medicine like taste that is not the delicious pornstar we all know and love!
This did however allow me to try out some new delights and I came across my now new favourite the spicy picante de la casa! (Warning this is one hot little drink so tastebuds beware!)
