Cold Holiday Punch

A light refreshing drink for the holidays.  The cranberry juice gives it a light red tint and drinks are much more festive in a beautiful glass with a garnish.  If you plan to make hot apple cider this year, serve it in a crock-pot with fresh sliced apples and oranges so it will stay warm and look great.
