Looking forward to having a QE2 50 cocktail at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Glasgow. Cunarder Man has arranged for the bar staff to make these from Wednesday and they will be available for conference delegates to order. 

Friday evening after the conference if over I definitely will be having a cocktail to toast QE2.

Thanks Louis for giving us this wonderful memory and sorry that you will not be at the conference.

The QE2 50 Year Anniversary Cocktail Special

I've got a bar list from the QE2 in 1992. This lists the "QE2 Cocktail" as one of the cocktails available. I remember trying it at the time but can't remember what was in it (and can't find a recipe). Is this the same as the "QE2 Cocktail" from 1992?

My bar list was for voyages to and from the UK and was therefore priced in Sterling. It quotes a price of £1.85! Could the CP be persuaded to match?

I think its fair to say that the QE2 50 Cocktail was a roaring success!  Even some non-QE2 punters wanted to see what all the fuss was about and try one.  The bar staff were all able to make it without needing to check.

I'm not one for cocktails normally, but I very much enjoyed the 3 I got last night bought for me by 3 very special QE2 people,

Well Done Louis, and thank you!

There's a short "Live" Video on our Facebook page of us trying it for the first time.
