5 Excellent sweet vermouth cocktails that aren’t a Manhattan! | Anders Erickson

Today we’re addressing that bottle of sweet vermouth taking up room in your fridge! Seeing how it doesn’t keep forever, I thought a few classic drink ideas to use it up might be helpful.

Here are some of my favorites beyond the popular Manhattan and Negroni. From sweet to sour, strong to session-able -each drink calls for a different base spirit. So whatever style of cocktail you’re in the mood for, there should be one for you. Grab your sweet vermouth, give these a try, and let me know which one is your favorite! Cheers!
