bar basics 101/4 : vermouth

I'm secretly really excited to chat about vermouths! Vermouth is used in some of the best classic cocktails such as martinis, manhattans, negronis and boulevardiers!

Most people keep them on the shelf until they run out, no judgement, I did the same. However, once I learned that they were made from grapes and really should be treated like a wine, my life changed along with the taste of my martinis!

There are more vermouth options than you might realize, a great way to test them is to get the same drink (old fashioned or martini, a drink you can really taste them in) when you go out, each stop try a different one. You'll be amazed and might become a little picky. Cheers!
