QEII enjoys a casual cocktail

Queen Elizabeth II at her ease
Most people are used to seeing Queen Elizabeth II dressed to the nines in matching hat, coat and dress, clutching a coordinating purse and giving the Royal Wave to her subjects.

So, it's interesting to seeing her enjoying a casual lunch -- accompanied by a Dubonnet-and-gin -- while clad in casual attire during an outing on the royal family's Balmoral estate in Scotland.

For those unenlightened commoners unfamiliar with Dubonnet, it is a wine-based aperitif popular in Europe and with steady sales in the U.S.
