Autumn Punch

"Punch" is a good description of this one-a couple of glasses pack a wallop. Add extra cranberry juice if you want it weaker.

2 whole cinnamon sticks
5 whole cloves
1/3 cup sweet vermouth
1/3 cup dry vermouth
2 cups cranberry juice
2 tablespoons sugar
2 bottles dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc
1 bottle dry, full-bodied red wine, such as Cabernet Sauvignon
1 cup apple brandy
1 cup citrus vodka
1 orange, sliced
1 lemon, sliced

1. Simmer spices, vermouths, cranberry juice, and sugar in a small saucepan. Remove from heat and let steep 1 hour.
2. Chill remaining ingredients in a large container. Strain spice mixture into wine mixture and chill until ready to serve.
