COST: $30-$35

DEFINING FLAVORS: Bitter orange peel & dried cherries


It's definitely more expensive than your grocery-store sweet vermouth but it's oh so worth it! Slightly bitter, rich, fruity and quite possibly the best bang-for-your-buck if you want a truly complex and enticing vermouth.

This is my go-to for Negronis and Manhattans but it's also really nice on its own after a big meal.
