Step 4. Pour into cups while warm and garnish with cinnamon sticks and orange slices.

Step 5. Decoration : Dip the rim of a wine glass with lemon juice, hold the wine glass upside down on a plate with sugar and dip it in sugar.

4. cooking tips

Because there is a boiling process during the manufacturing process, the alcohol in the wine is almost evaporated to become a drink that is close to non-alcoholic. It is good to make it warm in the cold winter to warm the body, and to make it cold in the summer and eat it. If you are not feeling well, you can add a little more cinnamon to eat (or add grapefruit).
