To make cranberry spice simple syrup:

Remove from heat and let cool. Once the syrup cools, use a strainer to separate the fruit and spices from the liquid.

Mix cranberries, sliced apple and orange, simple syrup, wine, brandy and Triple Sec in a carafe and let sit for 12+ hours. Then, add juices and ginger ale, stir and enjoy!
