Cocktails & Spirits 10

favorite / best daily vermouth?

I know that there is a lot of variation in personal taste in vermouth, and that different styles will work better in different cocktails, but all that aside, I'm curious for opinions on what to stock in a minimal home bar.

If you could just only one dry/white/french vermouth, maybe two, and only one sweet/red/italian vermouth, maybe two, what would you choose? What's your daily mixer?

Bottles that are technically not vermouth, like Lillet, can be included if you find them equally versatile. And I know Carpano Antica is pretty much the gold standard for red, but do you really stock it all the time?

Edify me please, I've explored these realms a bit but am looking for more guidance and a few new things to try.

Thanks!
