Jalapeño Margarita

Whiskey Park’s fully-stocked bar, pool table, eight big screen TVs, and outdoor seating showing stunning views of Central Park all make this one of Manhattan’s most sports-friendly venues. Straying from beer that normally accompanies a sports bar, the cocktail menu is unique and delicious. The Jalapeño Margarita is one great option, including muddled jalapeño, tequila, Cointreau, simple syrup, and lime for a spicy yet delicious cocktail.
