Champagne Jello Shots
I have so much to celebrate this year that I just had to create a champagne jello shot.
Perfect for a New Years Eve party!
I used pineapple jello with strawberries and they taste like champagne gummy bears, it’s delicious and refreshing.
The champagne foam on top is created by whipping some thickened champagne jello with a high speed hand mixer until it foams up and then re-settles.
I can’t lie, I didn’t use Perrier Jouët, that was given to us by family when we celebrated our engagement. I used $10 dollar bubbly and it worked just as well.
I just think the Perrier Jouët bottles are gorgeous and I can’t throw it away! Any ideas on how to keep it in the house with out it looking like I’m collected empty bottles of booze?
Happy New Year!
Shopping List (Makes about 20 shots)
2 boxes of pineapple jello (4 serving size boxes)
1 1/2 cups boiling water
2 1/2 cups champagne
1 cup sliced strawberries
2 oz. plastic or glass shot glasses (mini champagne flutes would be adorable if you can find them)
Mix your pineapple jello and boiling water in a medium sized bowl, stirring until jello powder has all dissolved. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Stir in champagne and refrigerate for another 30 minutes or until jello has just slightly thickened.
Set aside about 3/4 cup of your jello and champagne mixture for creating the foam top and put it back in the refrigerator.
Pour jello and champagne mixture into your shot glasses, then drop a few sliced berries in each glass.
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.
