How to Make Cranberry Ginger Punch
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.
Garnish with Fresh Cranberries on a Skewer
Making the cranberry skewer is easy, you will need decorative skewers or long toothpicks, fresh cranberries or fresh rosemary sprigs. Thread 5 fresh cranberries onto the pick, insert into punch in individual glasses.
