Vermouth recipes

Cherry negroni

Cherry negroni

By Wayne Collins

An aromatised wine-based alcoholic drink flavoured with a range of roots, spices, fruits or herbs and produced mainly in France and Italy.

There are two main styles: red and white. White vermouth is used in the classic Martini cocktail but also makes a good cooking ingredient, particularly in fish dishes, such as fish pies or fish stews. Red vermouth is sweeter and is usually drunk as a digestif.

Buyer's guide

Most commercial vermouths are of good quality, but taste and find a style that suits you best.


The aroma and flavour of vermouth deteriorate quite rapidly after it’s been opened, so use within 2-3 weeks of opening.


Red and white vermouth are not interchangeable in cooking.
