Sampled neat, this particular Porn Star is overly fruity and a tad acidic, but follow the instructions on the bottle and serve over ice, then both temperature and dilution tone the drink down, add balance and reveal smoothing cream-of-soda vanilla.

That said those same drinkers are sure to love the convenience of this bottled version for home consumption – it’s not a bad rendition, although it is let down by it's gaudy sleeved packaging.
