A spicy blend of pomegranate and orange juices and apple cider is served warm.
Cut pomegranates in half. Extract juice from seeds with a citrus juicer or reamer. Strain into a medium saucepan. (You should have about 2 1/2 cups juice.)
Add cider, 2 cups water, the cinnamon stick, and ginger. Cook over high heat until simmering, 5 to 6 minutes. Reduce heat; gently simmer 15 minutes. Skim any foam that rises to the surface.
Remove from heat. Discard cinnamon and ginger. Stir in orange juice. Serve warm, garnished with orange zest.
