Christmas Punch

My mother used to make this punch in huge batches and store it on our front porch during the cold winter months in Pennsylvania. I still make it every Christmas and often far into January!

2 cups water
1 cup sugar
4 cups cranberry juice
4 cinnamon sticks
12 cloves
2 cups orange juice
1-1/2 cups lemon juice
2 cups pineapple juice
1 quart ginger ale

Boil water and sugar. Add cranberry juice and spices. Cook 5 minutes and strain. Cool. Add other juices and ginger ale and chill.
