Welcoming the Year of the Dragon

purple dragon juice cocktail drink recipe

It's Chinese New Year's Eve, the night before the Dragon.  Chinese families will gather together for a feast called the Reunion Dinner, where an elaborate meal will be served - possibly steamboat (hot pot) - with too many courses for the family to finish.  The leftovers symbolizing the bountiful wealth and good fortune to come in the New Year.

At the stroke of midnight, the deafening bangs and pops of firecrackers will shake the ground, and fireworks will brighten the night sky.  All to welcome the Year of the Dragon.

We welcome this auspicious year with a drink - Fire Dragon Juice!

However you welcome in the Year of the Dragon, we hope you have a delicious, belt-busting meal tonight, enjoying the company of your loved ones.
