Can I use French Vermouth in a Gin Martini?

It smells like vinegar, but I'm out of the regular.

Honey, use floor polish, as long as it gets you drunk.

Hand sanitizer for an exta kick.

If your Vermouth has turned to vinegar don't put it in your drink. Use it for salad dressing. Add EVOO, green onions, Provençal herbs, salt and pepper, shake well. Voilà.

But that won't get me very drunk, R3.

Use red Lavoris or yellow Cepacol for a kicky twist!

If the Vermouth has a brownish color, it's also oxidized and isn't good for anything. Pour it out. You know once it's opened it must be stored in the fridge, right? Before it gets too old and goes off, if you're not making many martinis, Vermouth makes good cooking wine for sauces, stews, chicken dishes, onion soup, etc.

Just go get some tonic water and make gin and tonics. It'll get you plenty drunk.

Dump the spoiled vermouth down the sink.

Robitussin always adds an interesting complexity.

To the drink as well.

Thanks, R6.

Thats the reason we still have it-- BF's cooking adventures.

I just skipped it.

I play Tartine Gramercy, an heiress to a vermouth fortune and a freshman at NYU.
