I just did!
Made it myself, and lived to tell the tale!

It's got potential.
Got 6 lbs whole hops from HopsDirect UPS today.

Wondering how I'm ever going to learn the different aroma flavors, so I invented the Hop Martini.

Do the hops conflict with the juniper berries?

I am curious....

I imagine a vodka hop tincture would be decent. You should try it out! Let it sit a few months, strain, enjoy, then report!

I wouldn't think so as it's a vodka martini

Read the title again and you said vodka...DUH.

It's all about the gin, baby! Very interesting - I may have to run out and grab a few hops to try this with!

/Vodka in a martini is sacrilege anyway...

At a bar I used to work at we'd put a bunch of jalapenos in a bottle of ketel one and it was awesome. I imagine doing the same with hops would also be awesome. I also saw a picture in a magazine of a commercially made "hopquila"
