Default Vermouth?

I want to try a bean recipe that calls for vermouth. I have not cooked with it before. Is there a substitute I could use or should I use the real stuff?

Thank you for any help.

Vermouth is used in martinis and drinks of the sort. I have seen its used in sauces ( My dad is a chef ) but I can't think of a substitution. I have it in my drink cabinet so i would use it. Go for the real stuff and what ever you have left over make some good drinks

I'd use the real stuff. The aromatics from botanicals is what really makes it. You can get small bottles and if there's any leftover, Martini time!

Vermouth is a fortified wine. Like deguerre said, it is the botanicals it is fortified with that really makes it what it is. But if you can't find any you can use a dry white wine but it won't have the same aromatic effect that vermouth imparts.

This is a perfect suggestion for dry. If it had been sweet vermouth you could have swapped out a sweeter red wine like sherry, madeira, marsala or maybe even a port.

You can make a manhattan and old fashion with the sweet vermouth!

Both dry and sweet vermouth taste dispicable if you try to taste it by itself. Mixed in cocktails or in cooking and it is very dericious!

If it calls for dry vermouth, I think you could substitute a dry white wine. Vermouth is a wine fortified with herbs, spices and other aromatics. IMO, a dry white wine would work, and if the recipe called for sweet vermouth, you could substitute a sweet red wine. I'm guessing the recipe calls for a small amount of vermouth, since a little goes a long way.

Also, for the lightweight in you, keep in mind, when you cook with alcohol, almost all of the alcohol evaporates, leaving behind the flavors of the beverage.

Martini: put a few drops of dry vermouth into a martini glass, roll around until glass is coated and then shake out. Place 2.5oz gin into cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake gently (don't bruise the booze) strain into vermouth coated glass and add skewer of cocktail olives.

Dry Martini: Pass vermouth bottle over top of martini glass without any vermouth actually leaving bottle. Follow shaking & pouring advice above.

Manhattan: Follow glass coating step from standard martini recipe above using sweet vermouth. Use 2.5 oz of your favorite bourbon. Garnish with a twist of lemon and marashino cherry instead of olives.

On Edit: If you're not much of a drinker you get one and only one of these. They're straight booze and will put you on your lips before you know it.
