Ingredients
  • 1 orange, zested
  • 2 Mexican cinnamon sticks
  • 5 whole cloves
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped peeled ginger
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 (25 1/4-ounce) bottle sparkling cider (about 3 1/4 cups), chilled
  • 4 cups cranberry juice cocktail, chilled
  • 1 (1-liter) bottle club soda
  • 1 cup dark rum
Directions

Bring the orange zest, cinnamon sticks, cloves, ginger, water, and sugar to a boil in a small heavy saucepan, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Reduce the heat and then simmer, covered, 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let steep, uncovered, for 1 hour.

Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, discarding the solids.

Combine the remaining ingredients with the spiced syrup in a punch bowl and stir. Add ice before serving.
