    I have been making this for years. I substitute two (3-oz.) pkgs. cranberry Jell-o for the raspberry. If you mix the spices with the Jell-o powder before adding the boiling water, they will not "float" to the top. I also sub out a can of drained mandarin oranges for the orange segments - cleaner and neater.
