Top Rated Vermouth Recipes

Not vodka, not chocolate liqueur, gin. The second ingredient is dry vermouth, and the third is an olive. The ratio of gin to vermouth varies widely, and every martini drinker has their own preferred ratio. Winston Churchill, legendarily, prepared his martini extra dry: he poured gin into the glass, and cast a glance at the bottle of vermouth across the room. Read more about martinis.

Lane Becker, of The Ordinary in Charleston, S.C. contributes the Vermouth Spritz as an ultimate tipple to toast to spring and we couldn’t agree more. “It's so hot in Charleston in the spring, that when a guest first comes in, they usually want something crazy refreshing and low in booze to start. The herbaceous vermouth in this spritz pair perfectly with the armloads of amazing ingredients our farmers bring us this time of year for our delicious entrées,” Becker says.Courtesy of Lane Becker, The Ordinary.
