Cunard are shaking and stirring up their drinks menus as they prepare to introduce a new list of cocktails which are inspired by ‘Commodores’ of the historic line.
These new drinks can be enjoyed in the Commodore Club and other venues on board all of the three Cunard Queens and will reflect Cunard’s links with the past but created with a modern twist. Cunard enthused in a statement:
“Each historic and decorated story is infused into the cocktail experience with a modern menu design, illustration and superb new signature cocktails. These new and fresh additions to the renowned bar, found in prime locations on each of the Cunard Queens, highlight the incredible craftsmanship that has gone into each drink. Cunard’s talented onshore and on board bar teams have carefully mixed ingredients reflective of the personalities of these celebrated men.”
An interesting and perhaps quirky cocktail is called ‘Punch Romain à la Carpathia’, and legend has it, it was the last cocktail to be served on board the ill fated Titanic. The cocktail is inspired by the heroism and courage shown by the savior of the Titanic’s survivors, Captain Arthur Rostron, then Captain of Carpathia.
To bring these drinks to life and also that of the Commodores, Cunard have established a working relationship with illustrator, Lauren Crowe, who in turn has created pencil illustrations of the celebrated Commodores.
Cunard is known the world over and has constructed some of the most famous ships in the world over the past 176 years of their long and illustrious history. In recognition of the achievements of their most famous and highest ranking personnel, their link with their proud heritage is thus maintained but with a 21st century twist.
