With 11 wins, the San Diego Padres sit atop the National League West standings, making it an exciting start to baseball season for fans, locals or anyone who enjoys an afternoon at Petco Park. And East Village’s WhipHand, located just around the corner from the Balboa Park Gate, wants to help celebrate with a specialty cocktail – The Manny Matcha-Do.
The blend of Titos, Cardamaro, a wine-based aperitif, fresh lime, matcha and mint is named for one of the Padres’ most thrilling players, Manny Machado. WhipHand also features sharable plates, like Zucchini Truffle Fries, with white truffle oil and grated parmesan cheese, and a 24-tap self-serve beer bank!
Before or after a game this season, be sure to swing by WhipHand to taste the Manny Matcha-do or use the below recipe to enjoy while you watch the San Diego Padres from home:
