  1. Make the overnight spiced vodka: In a glass jar, combine the vodka, cinnamon stick, star anise pod, and cloves. Seal the jar tightly and give it a quick shake, then let infuse at room temperature for at least 24 hours, or up to 3 months. Strain out the whole spices before using.
  2. Make the cocktail: Add 5 cranberries and the mint to a cocktail shaker and muddle for 30 seconds. Add 1½ ounces of the spiced vodka, the lime juice, cranberry juice, and ice to fill the shaker. Shake vigorously for 1 minute, or until very cold.
  3. Add a handful of fresh ice to a copper mug, then strain the cocktail into the mug. Fill the rest of the way with ginger beer. Float the remaining 5 cranberries on top and garnish with lime wedge.
  4. Serve immediately.
  5. Enjoy!
