Ingredients

3 (12-ounce) cans evaporated milk

5 packages unflavored powdered gelatin

1 1/2 cups heavy cream

3/4 cup sugar

1 vanilla bean, split

1 teaspoon salt

2 ounces bourbon (optional)

2 cups cranberry juice

Directions

  1. Combine 1 can of evaporated milk with four packages gelatin and bloom for five minutes.
  2. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, bring the remaining milk and heavy cream to a boil. Stir in the sugar, vanilla bean, salt, and bourbon (optional). Combine this mixture with the gelatin mixture and stir until all solids have dissolved. Remove the vanilla bean and pour the mixture into a six-cup brain mold. Refrigerate overnight to fully set.
