It can marinate overnight. I made it Saturday and I'm having leftovers right now...still very good. I added the grapefruit, grapes and pomegranet seeds. The spices don't really need the cheesecloth just strain over the fruit and leave the cinnamon sticks in the bowl. It was lovely in a trifle bowl.
