Preparation: Place cranberries in a bundt pan, add 4 cups of hot water. Place bundt pan in freezer and allow to freeze solid. Prior to serving, add all other liquid ingredients to a punch bowl and stir. Remove frozen cranberries from freezer and bundt pan and add to punch bowl to chill beverage. Add lime slices for color.

Cinnamon Flavored Simple Syrup: 2 cups water, 1.5 cups sugar, 5-6 cinnamon sticks. Place all ingredients into a sauce pan. On the stove, bring mixture to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Simmer for 10-12 minutes. Remove cinnamon sticks. Allow to cool. Transfer to a bottle or jar.
