"Vermouth" is a fortified wine used as an aperitif. Vermouth is technically an “aromatized fortified wine.” It is generally used as a mixer in martinis and is heavily aromatic with its herbal ingredients. It was originally used medicinally like many spirits. Vermouth comes in two forms. Dry vermouth is associated with France, and sweet vermouth with Italy. Although it can be both red and white, all vermouth is made from white wines and the coloration comes from the legal addition of caramel.
