Cunard Creates Cocktails For It's Commodore Club Onboard QM2, Inspired by Knighted Commodores.
Cunard has revealed a new menu for its popular Commodore Club, featuring a blend of signature cocktails created in honour of each of the cruise line’s seven knighted commodores.
The menu shares the fascinating stories of the knighted Cunard Commodores and features special illustrations in a modern menu design, infusing the cocktail experience onboard Cunard’s three Queens with rich maritime history.
With the Commodore Club enjoying a prime location on each of the Cunard Queens, the transformed menu is one of a number of new food and beverage concepts being launched across the fleet.
The seven newly designed cocktails include ‘Over the Top’ inspired by Commodore Sir James Charles (1865-1928). Known for doing things on a grand scale, this Commodore’s dinner parties aboard Aquitania were renowned as opulently social affairs, and this aromatic and refreshing sharing cocktail is extravagantly presented, just the way Sir James would expect.
Another cocktail on the menu is the ‘Punch Romain à la Carpathia’, believed to be the last libation served onboard the Titanic. This intriguing cocktail is inspired by Commodore Sir Arthur Rostron (1869–1940), who led the safe rescue of passengers on the Titanic, and features Advocaat as the signature ingredient.
Cunard worked with illustrator Lauren Crowe who created intricate pencil illustrations of each of the knighted Commodores as part of the new menu design.
Cunard Director Angus Struthers said commemorating Cunard’s seven most decorated Commodores was testament to their prestige and rich history.
“Inspired by this history, each character is reflected in an artful and carefully crafted way, and we hope our guests enjoy this new series of cocktails celebrating the Commodores’ remarkable stories,” Mr Struthers said.
