In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, ginger, juniper berries, cranberries, cinnamon sticks and 1/2 cup of water and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat and let steep for 1 hour. Strain the juniper syrup through a fine sieve into a small bowl, pressing on the solids; discard the solids.
