In a heavy saucepan, bring rice, milk and syrup to a simmer over medium heat, stirring often.
Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer,stirring occasionally, for 20 min. Stir in cranberries and half of the zest; cover and simmer for 5 to 10 min longer or until rice is very soft and pudding is slightly thickened (it will thicken considerably upon cooling).
Serve hot, warm or cold, stirring in more milk as necessary to thin. Sprinkle each serving with cinnamon and remaining zest.
