I used fresh ginger, peeled and chopped in my saucepan. Stir occasionally so sugar doesn’t burn. Remove form heat and let it cool 20 minutes.  Strain the ginger from the sugar syrup.  Add this to your decorative pitcher, then add cranberry and orange juice.  Stir to blend or combine.  Pour beverage over crushed ice in cocktail glasses or other decorative glass, add ginger ale or sprite for bubbly.  Garnish with cranberry pick.
