Thirsty Thursday: Champagne Jello Shots

champagne jello shots

Make these. Make them right now! Seriously, you need these at your New Year’s party. Everyone will love them.

They can also make a cheap (and easy!) addition to any party. You don’t need to use fancy, expensive champagne for this. I used a 7 buck bottle of prosecco from Trader Joe’s. No one will know the difference.I  also used frozen strawberries only because the fresh ones looked gross and were a dollar more.

Champagne Jello Shots (from That’s So Michelle)*

  • 1 box of jello (the big 8 serving size box) – (I used peach)
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 2 1/2 cups champagne/prosecco/sparkling wine
  • strawberries (optional) (I used frozen)
  • 2 oz. plastic or glass shot glasses – (I used 10 ounce plastic glasses and filled them half way-ish and got 12 shots.)
  1.  Mix your jello and boiling water in a medium sized bowl, stirring until jello powder has all dissolved. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  2. Stir in champagne and refrigerate for another 30 minutes or until jello has just slightly thickened.
  3. Set aside about 3/4 cup of your jello and champagne mixture for creating the foam top and put it back in the refrigerator. 
  4. Pour jello and champagne mixture into your shot glasses, then drop a few sliced berries in each glass.
  5. Refrigerate overnight. Before serving whip your 3/4 cup left over jello until it becomes white and fluffy and resembles foam. Spoon “foam” on top and serve.
* – NOTE: I did not find step 3 and the 2nd half of step find necessary. My jello shots foamed up when I poured them into the cups (maybe because they are bigger than shot glasses?) and stayed foamy looking overnight.
