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.

  1. How about you put some white flowers in the bottle, lilies or something, and put it on a small table or in your window sill?

  4. I think the Perrier Jouët makes a nice prop for the photo -- when I first saw it, I was all, like, "Daaaaaaaaaaaang, this chick uses the good stuff!!" :D

    Strawberries and pineapple and champagne, oh my! :)

  11. Can't wait to try this for New Year's Eve. As for that bottle, stick some mini white lights in it and make it a lamp. Check this diy site out! http://creativelygreen.blogspot.com/2009/01/wine-bottle-lamps-need-led-light.html

  19. I was all ready to try this when I went to two stores today looking for pineapple jello and found none :( Where oh where did you find pineapple jello??

  20. I have the same bottle that I've been saving for a special occasion... when I finally do open it, I already have a wine bottle candelabra to use with the bottle afterward as a centerpiece. Seriously, google "wine bottle candelabra" - they are adorable, and perfect with a gorgeous bottle like Perrier Jouet!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Same question: Where the heck do you find pineapple jello??? I'm trying lemon....

    1. If you don't dissolve the jello completely (2 - 3 minutes) the jello might not set correctly. Just my experience

  24. If your measurements were precise and you let it sit overnight (around 8 hours) it should have firmed up just like a regular jello mold would have. Did you give it enough time?

    ReplyDelete
  25. When I checked at 8 hours time, they were 3/4 set up. Not sure if I did something wrong. I used room temp champagne, should it have been chilled, maybe?

  26. Use the bottle as a vase! white flowers would look lovely

  27. Michelle! My friend's dad does this cool thing where he carefully drills a hole in the bottom and puts a strand of LED lights inside. Looks great on a wet bar or as a night light. Let me know if you're interested and I can put you in touch. (She has photos too).

  28. I happened to have 1 box of pineapple at home so I grabbed 1 box of peach. My cups aren't clear so the color isn't an issue... hopefully the flavor isn't overwhelming. Thanks so much for the recipe. All I was finding before was Butter beer/ HP style.

  29. about your bottle..i drill holes in the back of my wine bottles, i love...and put a string of white Christmas lights in them..and use as mood lighting throughout the house.

  30. You are the queen of jello shots! I love all your different ideas =)

  31. you could melt and flatten the champagne bottle. Its all over San Francisco..you can find all kinds of bottles "recycled"

  32. These are so much fun. May have to try them out this NYE!

  33. You should use a glass cutter ans put a 2" x 2" square in the back bottom of the champagne bottle and insert tealights or other small candles inside. This will make the bottle glow with ambiance and look very elegant!

  34. how about a white flower , that would be cool i guess especially with some Champagne Flutes
