Three years ago, Brookline tapas stalwart Taberna de Haro branded its 13-seat bar as Straight Law, a nod to a classic gin and sherry cocktail. It continues to approach fortified Spanish wines with finesse, identifying superlative bottles for use in cocktails—from the eponymous Manzanilla tincture to an Amontillado-based sherry cobbler—and in four-variety flights that educate as well as they inebriate. Which is to say: Very well, indeed.
