After the talks on Thursday, I ventured across the French Quarter to visit Cane & Table and found a seat in front of Samantha Prarrie who made me the Modern Lover last year. For a first drink this year, I asked Sam for the Color of Doubt which was "inspired by the Negroni, this dark and brooding cocktail uses two overproof spirits with Spanish vermouth and Cynar and elevated by incorporating fresh mint."
