  • 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.
