  • 1 can (12 fl.oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 1/4 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  • 1 tablespoon orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier
  • 1/2 pint raspberries


Whisk evaporated milk, sugar, orange zest, and gelatin in a small saucepan until gelatin softens and sugar dissolves. Bring milk mixture to a simmer. Remove from heat and stir in liqueur. Pour a scant 1/2 cup into each of four 6-ounce custard cups. Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours. (Panna cotta can be covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated for up to 5 days.)

To serve, run a thin-bladed knife around inside edge of custard cup. Turn out each panna cotta onto a small dessert plate, garnish with raspberries, and serve.
