Vermouth or Vermout
Vermouth (from the French vermout or vermouth and these from the German wermut, 'ajenjo' or 'absinthe') is a wine macerated in herbs served during aperitifs, composed of white wine, absinthe and other bitter substances. These wines are typically European, with a characteristic aroma that gives them a particular elegance for a cocktail or aperitif. Generally, two types can be found: red and white. The red vermouth (Italian) is sweet; while the white one (French) is dry, with a higher alcoholic content.
