Poll to Name QE2's 50 year celebration cocktail
« on: Sep 02, 2016, 04:21 PM »
QE2 Barkeeper, Davina (Louis) has been set a forum challenge to make a special cocktail for QE2's 50 year celebration. 

However, it is you who will have the honour of choosing the name.  Please participate by voting for two choices that you think would be the best name for this special cocktail.

After two weeks we will freeze the voting, then continue with a second round of voting among just the top two (one vote per person for the second round).  We will give more details of the second round at that stage.

No matter what the name turns out to be, I am sure Louis will do the old girl proud!

I am certainly looking forward to sampling the finished article at the 50 year celebration event.

Here's to Her!

For me there is only once choice, so iv made a single choice.
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

It is good to know that there is only one choice for you Myles, intrigued to know which one it is but will wait until the competition closes to learn your choice.  Two stood out for me but they are all good.  I tried to imagine sitting in a QE2's cocktail bar and ordering a cocktail using each of the names, and the two that sounded right were my choice.

Yes, I did the same thing -- testing how it sounded. The name has to be one that is recognisable and that would sound good if spoken aloud in the Crystal Bar or the Chart Room... or, to be realistic, elsewhere.

I did the same thing, said the names out loud to see how they would sound when ordering.  My votes are in.  Wouldn't it be awesome to be able to order our new drink actually aboard QE2 !   :)

The end of the month is approaching, and so is the big day when a decision on the cocktail's name will be taken.

I cannot wait to see the recipe... and then, of course, to try it out. Louis, I am sure you will have lots of customers!

The name itself suggests that the cocktail will be awesome and a tribute to our QE2 !  :)

Louis, time to perfect your recipe!

Looking forward to tasting the outcome when we meet in September. Hope you'll be there to mix the first couple yourself :) .

Excitement is mounting :) .

Louis, will you be coming to the Conference? It would be lovely if you could mix a first serving of your cocktail yourself!

If you cannot make it, could you please let us have the recipe, so that we can ask for it to be prepared for us in Glasgow?
