Vermouth on Wikipedia:

A bottle of vermouth

Vermouth is a fortified wine, flavored with aromatic herbs and spices (``aromatized`` in the trade) such as cardamom, cinnamon, marjoram and chamomile.[1] Some vermouth is sweetened; however, unsweetened, or dry, vermouth tends to be bitter. The person credited with the second vermouth recipe, Antonio Benedetto Carpano from Turin, Italy, chose to name his concoction ``vermouth`` in 1786 because he was inspired by a German wine flavoured with wormwood, an herb most famously used in distilling absinthe.[2][3] The modern German word Wermut (Wermuth in the spelling of Carpano's time) means both wormwood and vermouth. The herbs in vermouth were originally used to mask raw flavours of cheaper wines, imparting a slightly medicinal ``tonic`` flavour.

Uses

In addition to creating cocktails, vermouth can be used in place of white wine in cooking. Since it is fortified and shelf-stable, it makes a good substitute to keep on hand for cooking purposes since it will not sour as white wine can.

Cocktails

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.
