Champagne Jello Shots
Bye 2022 and hello champagne jello shots! What better way to ring in the start of the new year than with these delicious (and dangerously easy to consume) champagne jello shots. Made with gelatin, lemon juice, sugar, champagne and vodka, these jello shots are perfect for celebrating any occasion!
What do you need to make champagne jello shots?
The recipe for these champagne jello shots couldn’t be easier and the ingredient list is super simple, so there’s really no excuse to not throw these together for your next celebratory soiree. Here’s what you’ll need:
Champagne: These wouldn’t be champagne jello shots without the bubbly! You can also use a sparkling wine like prosecco or really anything else you have on hand!
Granulated Sugar: Champagne is pretty dry and vodka isn’t exactly sweet, so I like to adda. little sugar to these to curb the taste of the alcohol!
Lemon Juice: A little lemon juice gives these champagne jello shots the perfect flavor with just a hint of juicy lemon!
Unflavored Gelatin: This is an absolute must for these jello shots! Make sure you’re using a plain, unflavored gelatin for best results! Don’t be alarmed that it smells kind of bad when you open it–all those other flavors will offset it and all you’ll taste is sweet champagne, vodka, and lemon!
Vodka: In my opinion, jello shots should pack a boozy bunch, so I like to add vodka to these to make things extra fun, but if your prefer a less boozy jello shot, you can swap it out for water, more champagne, or even a fruit juice if you want these to be a little sweeter!
Tips for making the perfect jello shots
Gelatin is one of those magical ingredients that seems like nothing, but give it a few hours and it turns into something totally different! If you’ve never worked were gelatin before it can be a little stressful because you won’t see it coming together until it’s set.
Make sure you’re using plain, unflavored gelatin: Flavored gelatin will make these jello shots a totally different flavor and super sweet, so the recipe won’t turn out the same!
Don’t let the mixture boil: Be sure to not let the jello mixture boil or you can mess with the jiggly gelatin!
Give your jello shots the full time to set: I hate waiting too, but it’s best to give your jello shots a full 3 hours in the fridge to fully set up. Otherwise, you might end up with soupy, not fully set jello shots that will turn into a big mess!
