VALENTINE’S DAY (3 February 2015)
"Each year on February 14th, many people exchange candy, cards, gifts or flowers with their special “valentine.” The day of romance we call Valentine’s Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century, but has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia". According to History(www.history.com)
62 % of adults in the United States celebrate the holidays. 58 million pounds of chocolate candy are bought during Valenties´s day week. This time I will celebrete Valentine´s day on the beach with my friends drinking delicious Strawberry Coctail with Litchi and Rose peppercorns. I tried it before at the restaurant La Grassa in Sao Paulo and since then I dreamed about doing it by myself. I hope you will like it and can do it for your "valenine". Enjoy and wish all of you lots of love. Thank you Bori for a great time in La Grassa, every time I will drink Strawberry Cocktail I will think about you.
