Vermouth

 

The vermouth or vermut is a word that derives from the French vermouth and is from the German wermut which means wormwood, with which absinthe is made. It is a wine marinated with herbs, wormwood and other bitter substances. That is, we start with quality wines with a certain degree and sweets. It seems that this drink was invented by Hippocrates, famous doctor and philosopher of antiquity, born in 460 a. C., who put to marinate in wine wormwood flowers and leaves of díctamo.

 

Actually, this particular combination of wine, herbs and spices is an appetite enhancer and therefore over time the word has also acquired a generic meaning to define the aperitif - any drink with an aperitif - prior to the meal.

-Vermouth red or 'rosso', is the sweetest variant and despite its color, it was also made with white wine and owed its coloring to an added ingredient: sugar syrup or caramel. Nowadays they are made with red wine.

-Vermouth white or 'bianco', is the most used as an appetizer, has a milder flavor and an intermediate sweetness. It is commonly drunk only with ice. The dry vermouth is the most bitter and precisely its bitter notes and the dry end made it a fundamental part of one of the most popular cocktails on the planet: the Dry Martini (agitated, not stirred, as James Bond drinks it ...)
