I served this at a New Year's party (with vodka on the side) and everyone was pleased. I was worried it might be too sweet so I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup and used plain, unsweetened cranberry juice. I also used two cinnamon sticks instead of the ground cinnamon and just left them in the finished punch along with frozen cranberries, lemon, lime and orange slices to dress it up. I will definitely make this again.
