The Australian show, which also turns 35 this year, hinted it was set in the same world as EastEnders with a background detail referencing its British counterpart.
A sign outside Neighbours' Waterhole bar showed off a list of four Albert Square-inspired cocktails.
Available to order were: “Walford Sour, Fowler Fizz, Slater Zolada and Dry Mitchell.”
Those who looked closely could see that the Waterhole’s “happy hour” was 7.30pm-8pm, the same time some episodes of EastEnders is broadcast.
The BBC soap’s official Twitter account thanked the soap for the reference, writing: “We raise a toast to you from The Vic to The Waterhole.”
