2 oz Bourbon, Medley Brothers
3⁄4 oz Hop Syrup (see notes)
1⁄4 oz Dry vermouth, Dolin
3⁄4 oz Lemon juice
1 ds Hop extract (see notes)

Build in a shaker, shake well with big ice to beat up strawberry. Strain (or fine strain) in to a chilled, stemmed glass.


Very Spring and refreshing. Hone in on just the right amount of hop extract to get some resinous aftertaste without being too sticky.

To make the hop syrup: Muddle .5 oz Whole Amarillo Hops into 1 qt sugar. Mix with 1 qt water, strain.

To make the hop extract: Soak .25 oz Simcoe whole leaf hops in 151 for 15 min. Strain.

Curated this slightly - moved the instructions for the hop syrup and extract to the notes section. Thanks,  Zachary
