He believed this could cure a nasty cold.
I remember as a child, having a small cup all for myself, I used to dip this Sweet Walnut Bread in it and wished it will never finish, very delicious combination.
Up until I was 8 years old, grandpa gave me a shot glass with wine for lunch and dinner... the older I got, the glass got taller :))
How to make hot wine:
Take 1 cup of red wine per person, 2 teaspoons sugar per cup, a small piece of cinnamon stick and 2 cloves.
Place everything in a pot and bring to a boil until is frothy, just like in the picture below.
Place in a cup and serve as hot as you can.
Perfect served with roasted salted nuts.
