2. In a large pitcher, combine the chilled fruit syrup with the sparkling water and apple must. Crumple 3 sage leaves and add to the pitcher. Remove the sage after 5 minutes.

3. Pour the punch into glasses filled with ice cubes. Garnish with sage leaves, rosemary branches and the remaining cranberries. For an alcoholic version, add 1 oz (30 ml) of gin per glass.
