Make a syrup with 1/3 cup water and 1/3 cup sugar in a saucepan. Add three cinnamon sticks, five whole cloves and 3 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger. Bring the combination to a boil, stirring constantly until the sugar is completely dissolved. Let the syrup cool for one hour. Strain the cloves, cinnamon and ginger out, and place the syrup to chill in the refrigerator.

Once the syrup is thoroughly chilled, pour it into a punch bowl and add one bottle of chilled sparkling cider, 4 cups of cranberry juice cocktail, and one bottle of club soda. Stir to combine all the ingredients.

Garnish witches' brew punch with a frozen hand by filling a powder-free, latex-free glove with fruit juice or water. Tie the end of the glove with kitchen twine and place it in the freezer. Once the hand is completely frozen, peel away the glove, and place the hand in the punch bowl. Add gummy snake candy to the punch or in the bottom of glasses for extra garnish.
