Fish House Punch

The Fish House Punch is believed to be the first-ever punch concocted in 1732 at Philadelphia’s fishing club, the State in Schuylkill. In fact, America’s first president, George Washington, was known to be fond of a drink or two, and sometimes more. He indulged in thirteen toasts — one for each state — during a victory celebration at New York’s Fraunces Tavern, and it is said that after he partook of Fish House punch at Philadelphia’s State in Schuylkill, he couldn’t bring himself to make an entry in his diary for the following three days.
