In the nineteenth century, most Americans didn’t have electricity, or even indoor plumbing. But they sure knew how to party. That’s the whole idea behind New Orleans’ Cane & Table. Set in a centuries-old building on the less-touristy end of the French Quarter, the establishment from the talent behind Crescent City cocktail palace, Cure, features beverages inspired by the way Southerners were drinking in the 1800s.
For special occasions, Cane & Table head bartender and managing partner Nick Detrich always mixes up a big bowl of punch. For Halloween this year, he served a classic with a great backstory: American Orange Punch. At Andrew Jackson’s inauguration in 1829, the tale goes, the incoming President threw a White House reception so overrun by rowdy revelers that a Supreme Court justice referred to them as “King Mob.” Only when White House staffers brought bowls of this punch out onto the lawn did the crowd exit the building, leaving behind thousands of dollars in damages.
