Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A Bloodhound is a cocktail made with gin, vermouth and strawberry coulis.This drink was at its most fashionable in London in the 1920s, and is regarded as an acquired taste by many. A lesser-known variation with raspberries instead of strawberries is called a Halsdon. A more striking variation comprises vodka, tomato juice, and sherry.Vermouth is a fortified wine, flavored with aromatic herbs and spices ("aromatized" in the trade) such as cardamom, cinnamon, marjoram and chamomile.Some vermouth is sweetened; unsweetened, or "dry" vermouth tends to be bitter. The person credited with inventing the vermouth recipe, Antonio Benedetto Carpano from Turin, Italy, chose to name his concoction "vermouth" in 1786 because he was inspired by a German wine flavoured with wormwood, a herb most famously used in distilling absinthe.
