“The Dive Bar of Cocktail Bars: How We Rewrote the Rules and Recipes One Cocktail at a Time” Release Party
Saint Louis, MO (November 26, 2012) – Saint Louis’ AWARD WINNING MIXOLOGIST, Matt Seiter, Bar Manager and Chief Liquor Officer at Sanctuaria, recently named BEST DRINK MENU in St. Louis by the Riverfront Times, BEST COCKTAIL MENU by Alive Magazine and one of the TOP 50 RESTAURANTS IN ST. LOUIS by St. Louis Magazine, is proud to announce the release of Sanctuaria’s first cocktail book “The Dive Bar of Cocktail Bars: How We Rewrote the Rules and Recipes One Cocktail at a Time” on December 11, 2012. Within these pages, Seiter, recently named BARTENDER OF THE YEAR by Sauce Magazine, will divulge his secrets and stories behind the infamous Sanctuaria cocktail menu. This no holds bar manual will provide step-by-step instructions allowing you to re-create the cocktails you’ve grown to love (or waiting to devour) while tasting your way through the extensive Cocktail Club. Included in this tell all cocktail guide are tips and tricks of the trade for tinctures, bitters and other “secret” ingredients used to give your cocktails the mouth-watering goodness Sanctuaria delivers.
Additionally, Seiter explains his choice not to use mass marketed brands in the inventory at Sanctuaria, providing full access to his tasting notes for every spirit he chose.
“As a confirmed New Yorker, it’s seldom that I think about moving elsewhere, but this book makes me wish that Sanctuaria was my local dive bar. Bartenders know that mixology ain’t rocket science, and in this book, Matt Seiter – an annoying bastard if ever there was one – let’s everyone take a glimpse inside the mind of a cocktailian at work, thoroughly taking the intimidation our of the craft. And he does it with style, too.”

To celebrate, Sanctuaria will be hosting a Cocktails by Candlelight event, sponsored by Camus Cognac, at 7pm on Monday December 10, 2012, Sanctuaria’s 3rd Anniversary. Everyone who attends will receive a complimentary copy of “The Dive Bar of Cocktail Bars” a day before it is released to the public! In light of the effort, blood, sweat and tears that went into this monumental task, the theme of this Southside Backyard Party.
