Vermouth, sweet?

Dear spouse came home with brown Vermouth instead of dry vermouth!

What do I do?

I looked it up and apperently it makes a fine Manhatten Cocktail, but I don't do Schotch.

Cherries Jubbilee? or mabey add it to Stogganof?

Thanks, Eric Austin Tx.

You can do what I did when a customer of mine gave me a bottle of sweet vermouth 20 years ago. I kept it in my liquor cabinet for about 15 years then tossed it.

I don't mix scotch with anything.

Mahattens are made with bourbon and not scotch. A totally different liquor so maybe try one.

Or a negroni cocktail -- vermouth and Campari

Martini and Rossi vermouth is ok with me. A tiny splash.

There's another famous vermouth brand that literally makes me gag. Noilly Prat vermouth.

That vermouth is ipecac to me. Keep it away! I get a natural gag reaction to the smell of it.

I like brandy Manhattans. Not a bourbon fan, but I do like scotch and water.

Sweet vermouth will keep almost forever. Taste it, see if you might like it in a stew, some soups, sauces.
