Red Vermouth

Red Vermouth was originally created in Italy, and its name is derived from the Italian word for wormwood, which is one of the main botanicals used to aromatize the wine. Vermouth is usually made from white wine, but red wine can also be used. The wine is aromatised with various botanicals and then fortified with distilled alcohol. Red vermouth is a popular aperitif in Italy and Spain, and it is also used in many classic cocktails, such as the Martini and the Negroni.
