  1. Set a medium-sized saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the cranberries, ginger, star anise, and clove and allow to simmer, until the cranberries break down, approximately 5-7 minutes.
  2. Remove the cranberry mixture from the heat and stir in the orange zest, orange juice and water. Allow to cool slightly, then pass through a fine-mesh sieve to remove seeds, skins and herbs. Reserve the compote for the cocktail.
