The day before you want to serve this, fill two ice cube molds with apple cider and freeze overnight. You may need a bit more or less of the cider, depending on the ice cube mold that you use. Heat the water, sugar, and cinnamon in a saucepan over medium heat, whisking the entire time. Cook until the mixture begins to bubble, and then remove it from the heat. Allow it to cool to room temperature. To make the punch, combine the cranberry juice, vodka, orange juice, cinnamon simple syrup, and cinnamon sticks in a large punch bowl or pitcher. Stir well and refrigerate for a few hours
