In a medium size pot, add the apple cider, cinnamon sticks, cloves, nutmeg, and vanilla bean.
Heat on low to medium heat until it barely starts to simmer. Dont boil it hard. Cover and let it simmer for at least 30 mins.
Alternately you can add those ingredients to a crock pot and heat on low for a few hours.
When the cider smells and tastes very flavorful, turn the heat off.
Add the wine and the vodka. Dont add these when the heat is on. You dont want to burn off the alcohol.
Next add the cranberries and apples. Cover and let it sit for a few mins. You can heat it on low to keep it warm in the pot or on low in the crock pot but be careful it doesnt get too hot.
Ladle into mugs and serve!
