Cunard has been busy creating some new drinks for the Commodore Club, and they’re inspired by a unique subject.
The iconic cocktail bar has revealed a new menu that shares the story of the Knighted Cunard Commodores. Each historic story is infused into the experience, with a modern menu design, illustration, and new signature drinks. Carefully selected ingredients mix together to create cocktails such as ‘Punch Romain à la Carpathia’, believed to be the last libation served aboard the sinking Titanic. The drink inspired by Commodore Sir Arthur Rostron who led the safe rescue of all Titanic survivors features Advocaat as the signature ingredient.
The recent renovation to Queen Mary 2 also provided the cruise line the opportunity to add modern elements to the bar’s interior, while new food and drinks are being launched across the entire fleet. One of the first to be available on every Cunard Queen is the Commodore Club’s transformed cocktail menu.
Cunard worked with illustrator Lauren Crowe to bring life to the seven men the cocktails represent, drawing intricate pencil illustrations of each, inspired by their history and stories. The depictions of the knighted Commodores are presented in a bold, modern menu, that together with the illustrations bring each Commodore’s story to life just a little bit more.
Cunard has the honor of being able to claim more knighthoods, seven, among their Captains than any other cruise line. Guest of the Commodore Club aboard Queen Mary 2 can enjoy one of seven of the new cocktails.
