Pour the apple juice into a small pan and add 2 tablespoons of sugar plus a cinnamon stick. Heat the beverage for about 5 minutes on low heat.
You can serve this cocktail either warm, lukewarm, or cold. If you are going for the latter, you will want to let the apple juice cool down all the way.
Wash the apple and remove its core, then cut it into pieces. Use one of the slices to garnish the cocktail. Just make a small incision in the slice of apple, which will help you place it on the rim of the glass.
Divide the apple pieces and fresh cranberries over the two glasses. Pour a small amount of vodka in each glass, approximately 3 tablespoons each. Add about half of the warm apple juice to the glass and serve the drink right away.
If you like a cold cocktail, make sure to let the heated apple juice first cool down and then add some ice cubes. Enjoy!
