Vermouth autrement...Vermouth differently... Wermut anderes...

Ein kleineres Artikel, da Ich gerade dabei bin es zu machen...!
Just a small article since I'm just making the stuff myself right now.
Un petit astuce - je suis justement en train de le faire moi même, a ce moment.
Everybody knows them, not everybody likes them.... Some are too sweet, some are too dry, some are served too strongly with other spirits....
 Well known brand marks... of all types.... are easily to be had, but sometimes finance plays a role, and sometimes it's taste.
Not so long ago, a lot of people in France used to make their own, with the help of little sachets of the vermouth root, mixed with other secrets, and sold in Supermarkets all over.
I don't know if it's still available, but I still had one sachet from way back.
The idea is simple. You take the sachet and mix it with wine.
The type of wine you mix it with gives the end result of the "Vermouth" - and often it is much better than the originals shown above!
Better wine gives better Vermouth, sweet wine gives sweet Vermouth - dry wine gives dry Vermouth - take your pick.
Now I'll have to go and find out if these sachets ARE still on sale, where and how much....! YOU can have a look here:

Vermouth Martini,

Actually, I've got another little trick up my sleeve....Many people don't like Vermouth too much, it's either too sweet, too dry or too heavy.
Well - it may not be strictly correct, but if it's white and too dry, why not add a little sweet white wine....? If it's white and too sweet, why not a little dry white wine...? Red the same, just with red wine.
Of course it's not the type of thing one wants to see in Bars or Restaurants, but I bet it happens (in fact I know it happens)...but at home, one can allow oneself the luxury of doing almost what one wishes.
Since the Vermouth is normally much more expensive than the wine, you'll be doing your wallet a favour as well....!
Cowboyish - huh? Yes, but it allows me to have the taste I want at a price I can pay....
