A three-day weekend mandated by royalty? We can definitely get on board with that, and so can most of Australia. This long and much-anticipated break from work is usually celebrated with trips to exciting places, extra time with friends and family, and lots of opportunities to relax with a drink or a meal. Make the most of the extra revellers by serving drinks fit for a Queen.
