Vermouth cocktail

Vermouth is a fortified wine flavored with aromatic herbs and spices and is used in many cocktails. In a cocktail, it serves as a moderating agent to reduce the percentage of alcohol by volume in the drink and provide an herbal flavor. In his book "The Joy of Mixology", Gary Regan categorizes these drinks as "French-Italian cocktails" because dry vermouth was traditionally referred to as French vermouth and sweet vermouth was traditionally referred to as Italian vermouth. The most well-known cocktails containing vermouth are the Martini and the Manhattan.
