Jarida la Kusafiri #5 - Chinese New Year

This year is the year of the Rat and according to Chinese culture, this is the animal seen as a sign of wealth and surplus. Unlike the universal New Year observed on 1 January, Chinese New Year never takes place on a fixed date - instead, it occurs according to the Chinese lunar calendar.

Here at Muratina, we have paired drinks based on your Chinese animal symbol personality traits.
