Champagne Jello Shots

Naturally sweetened champagne Jello shots are an easy yet glamorous way to put a elevated twist on a college classic. A touch of glitter (a.k.a. gold sanding sugar) makes them perfect for New Year's Eve, an epic birthday, or the best bachelorette party ever.

  • Run a toothpick around the edge of the Jello shots to loosen, then pop out upside-down onto a wax-paper lined surface or serving plate. Sprinkle with sanding sugar and serve chilled.

  • I recommend champagne for this recipe, but spumante is another great sparkling wine to use because it is so sweet. Moscato d'Asti and Prosecco can also be used in place of champagne.
  • For non-alcoholic jello shots, substitute the champagne and vodka in this recipe with more sparkling cider.
  • If you're using a metal muffin pan, or if your jello shots aren't releasing easily, place the bottom of the pan in hot water for approximately 15 seconds to help loosen the gelatin from the mold.
