2 1/4 cups cranberry juice cocktail

1 box (0.6 oz.) sugar-free cranberry gelatin (recommended: Jell-O)

3/4 cup orange flavored vodka

1 (16-ounce) can whole berry cranberry sauce (recommended: Ocean Spray)

2 tablespoons orange zest

1/2 cup chopped pecans

Fresh cranberries and mint sprigs, for garnish


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the cranberry juice to a boil. Transfer to a medium mixing bowl and pour in the gelatin. Stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir in vodka. Chill 1 1/2 to 2 hours in the refrigerator until it begins to set. Stir in remaining ingredients. Divide into 12 (4-ounce) molds. Refrigerate at least 4 hours to set.
  2. Remove from molds by first running the tip of a sharp knife around the edge of the mold to loosen side. Then dip the bottom of mold in a bowl of warm water. Invert onto a plate. Serve garnished with fresh cranberries and a sprig of fresh mint
