Best spirits homework: CW’S GIN JOINT

Best spirits homework

The secret weapon at CW’s Gin Joint is the genius of the Gin Matrix, which profiles flavors of more than 50 gins. It’s a work of art that demands study. Share multiple G&Ts served not in traditional rocks glasses, but in elegant stemware with a single, large spherical ice cube — all the better to savor the aromas. Then, grab the Matrix and let the serious homework begin. 633 N. Franklin St., Tampa. 813-816-1446, cwginjoint.com. —Jon Palmer Claridge
