Has anyone seen the canned drink at Marks & Spencer? It’s called Porn Star Martini. How sad that they have sunk so low. What do you think?

Sux2buthen Sat 22-Jun-19 22:51:16

It's been around for years and it's just one of many cocktail names

Hippopotas Sat 22-Jun-19 22:57:59

I think it’s a cocktail name

Anothertempusername Sat 22-Jun-19 23:11:26

It's a cocktail name. It's pretty shit compared to the ones you get in bars, just FYI.

Trills Sat 22-Jun-19 23:13:17

Do you really think that M&S would invent that as a cocktail name?

Obviously the Mojitos are the most famous #JusticeForDiane

Porn Star Martini is basically passion fruit & Prosecco and has been known as such for many, many years.

M&S also sell Grips, you know. You should get one.

What? It's a really popular cocktail... confused

WhiteLightTrainWreck Sat 22-Jun-19 23:17:14

Waitrose also do it, much nicer than the M&S one... Well it was last summer when I last drank alcohol 😅

It’s a cocktail name ( is the word COCK ok to use of does that offend one too?)

Anyone that’s ever been to a cocktail bar has heard of this.......

happytobemrsg Sat 22-Jun-19 23:22:32

Erm... that’s the name of the cocktail. It’s actually yummy

Needcoffeecoffeecoffee Sat 22-Jun-19 23:25:13

Is it that its canned and that's not posh enough for m and s op? Is that the problem?
Perfectly suitable for wicker hampers I'm sure! wink
But yeah as everyone's said it's a very popular cocktail

OldUnit Sat 22-Jun-19 23:25:16

Screwdrivers really offend me. So gender specific.

Oh and Sex on the Beach has no place on MY terrace.

Black Russian- racist.
White Russian- still racist.

It's a minefield.

I had porn star martinis (not in a tin) on my first date with DP smile

Vinorosso74 Sat 22-Jun-19 23:29:13

Be grateful a Blow Job can't be canned!!!

My problem is that I wouldn’t be happy with young children seeing it in the shop.

Lilyanna6 Sun 23-Jun-19 08:42:20

Very!

Lilyanna6 Sun 23-Jun-19 08:44:23

I’m sure it is. Are you happy with youngsters seeing it in the Shop?

Lilyanna6 Sun 23-Jun-19 08:44:46

True

tinytemper66 Sun 23-Jun-19 08:44:53

Are you real?

MsSquiz Sun 23-Jun-19 08:57:17

I'd be more worried that my child was hanging round in the alcoholic drinks section, browsing the products!

Eminybob Sun 23-Jun-19 09:01:10

There was this exact same thread a few months ago.

Small children don’t do around scrutinising the labels on the drinks on M&S shelves.
It’s the name of a cocktail. If you ever go for food with your dc in a pub or restaurant you’ll see it on the menu or on posters.

Get a grip.

DameXanaduBramble Sun 23-Jun-19 09:07:15

Oh blimey, stop looking for things to be offended by, its quite liberating.

LarryGreysonsDoor Sun 23-Jun-19 09:11:06

Won’t someone think of the children!!

Aberforthsgoat Sun 23-Jun-19 09:13:24

Haha Jesus talk about being precious. You must have a lot of free time if you’re this busy finding things to be offended by OP

MrsAJ27 Sun 23-Jun-19 09:16:20

Seriously? Other shops/supermarkets also sell it!

Pinklittle Sun 23-Jun-19 09:21:31

Oh dear!! 🤣

MAXnot73 Sun 23-Jun-19 09:23:34

My problem is that I wouldn’t be happy with young children seeing it in the shop.

Keep them out of the alcohol aisle 🤷‍♀️

AnthonyCrowley Sun 23-Jun-19 09:24:59

Well I don't think young children will be perusing the writing on the alcohol cans/bottles. Total non issue.

Wildorchidz Sun 23-Jun-19 09:27:11

🍹

fraxion Sun 23-Jun-19 09:27:16

What do you think?

😂 it was the most popular cocktail in the UK last year (or year before)! We did a food shop at Marks yesterday and I'm gutted I missed these, must pick up a couple next week!

straighttalker33 Sun 23-Jun-19 09:27:51

Hahaha how embarrassing

AnthonyCrowley Sun 23-Jun-19 09:32:36

The m&s ones aren't that nice to be honest. Will have to try the Waitrose ones. Tesco do them as well but OP will be glad to know they don't call them porn star martini......think they call them passion fruit martini or something like that.

olivo Sun 23-Jun-19 13:26:00

Prefer the m and s mojito. My children even know which one to pick off the shelf 😉
