Red Nosed Punch

This is a very nice holiday punch that is easy to make and low alcohol content so that you can drink it over time without disastrous consequences.  Highly recommended for a holiday party.

28 oz. cranberry juice
2 cups fresh cranberries
8 oz. bourbon
4 oz. fresh lime juice
3 oz.  cinnamon infused simple syrup
4 (12-oz.) bottles lager beer
3 limes, sliced

Place cranberries in a bundt pan and pour over 4 cups hot water; freeze until set (the hot water will freeze clear), about 2 hours.
Combine juices, bourbon, and syrup in a large punch bowl; stir to combine. Unmold frozen ice ring and float in punch; top with beer and sliced limes.
Cinnamon Infused Simple Syrup
1 cup sugar
4 sticks cinnamon, broken in half
12 vanilla bean, split, seeds scraped
Bring sugar, cinnamon, vanilla bean and seeds, and 1 cup water to a boil in a 2-qt. saucepan. Cook briefly to dissolve sugar. Cool; strain. Refrigerate up to 3 months.
