>I’m back from the conference and have since learned:
There are thee types of Vermouth:
Dry vermouth is white, usually 18 percent alcohol (36 proof) and contains at most 5 percent residual sugar. It’s drunk as an apéritif and is a vital part of the dry Martini.
Sweet vermouth is white (bianco) or red (rosso) and is usually 15-16 percent alcohol (30-32 proof) with up to 15 percent sugar. It is also used as an apéritif as well as in slightly sweet cocktails such as the Manhattan.
Yes, the conference left much to be desired.
Yes, it’s possible for me to have one martini in an evening… A beer chaser (or two) never hurts.
