Two Wednesdays ago, Andrea and I made our way over to Belly Wine Bar after having dinner at Cambridge Brewing Company. For a first drink, I requested The Matic from bartender Ryan Connelly. Ryan described how this libation was created by bar manager Fanny Katz for the new sherry section of the cocktail menu. Once mixed, the Matic presented a gin aroma with hints of sherry and herbal notes. A lemon and caramel-tinged sip led into a gin swallow that shared a pleasant sharpness from a combination of dry sherry, crisp lemon juice, and herbal Chartreuse.
