Q39’s bar manager, Jenn Tosatto, launches competition level bar program

Tosatto builds all new cocktails around the flavors of Q39, along with a new beer and wine menu

Kansas City, Mo. (Oct. 19, 2016) – Q39’s newly hired bar manager, Jenn Tosatto, created an entirely new bar program to match Q39’s championship-winning barbeque. Since July, Tosatto has spent time getting to know the menu, the bar staff and immersing herself in the high energy of Q39.

She built the program alongside executive chef and owner Rob Magee to coordinate cocktails, wine and beer with the flavors of Q39. Tosatto’s bar program and the kitchen go hand-in-hand, complementing each other and using house-made ingredients in the cocktails. Tosatto experimented on classic cocktails with classic techniques so all flavor profiles will pair well with barbeque.

Tosatto’s new bar menu consists of all new original cocktails, four additional draft beers, nearly all new red, white and sparkling wines, eight new craft beers and two new gluten free beers.

Many of the cocktails’ ingredients are made in-house, like the cherry cordial, smoked honey, cinnamon syrup, bloody mary mix and the large au jus ice cube.
