What is "dry"?

Dry is a term used to describe a type of drink that has little to no residual sugar content. The term is most commonly used to describe wines, particularly white wines, that have been fermented until most of the sugar has been converted into alcohol. Dry wines are known for their crisp, refreshing taste and are often enjoyed as an aperitif or paired with seafood, poultry, or vegetable dishes. In addition to wine, the term dry can also be used to describe other alcoholic beverages, such as gin or vermouth, that have a low sugar content and a clean, sharp taste. Non-alcoholic drinks, such as sodas or juices, can also be described as dry if they have been made with little or no added sugar.
