Fun Champagne Jello Shots to count down to midnight or to celebrate good times with family and friends.
A semi-solid drink to pep up a party!
What are jello shots?
Jello shots are a fun way to get a party going.
They are basically alcohol flavored gelatine pieces that you have in one go.
It's like having a liqueur shot just that jello shots won't get you drunk.
Champagne jellos are a variation of jello shots flavored with bubbly champagne.
They can be prepared with prosecco too.
The alcohol ratio has to be less or else the jellos won't set.
Fancy gourmet champagne jello shots won't get you tipsy but they are rich in champagne flavor!
The bubbles in the jello shots are formed because champagne is a sparkling wine.
How to make it?
Making champagne jello shots is easy. The complicated part is waiting for it to set and the unmolding
You will find the complete recipe with ingredients and instructions + video at the bottom of this post.
Combine hot water and gelatine powder to a smooth consistency.
Add powdered sugar and champagne when the water gelatine mix has cooled down a bit.
Combine the mixture very well.
Prepare containers to fill. You can add sugar decorations.
Mix your champagne flavored gelatine before pouring and pour equal amounts into each container.
Leave to stand until set.
To make champagne jello shots you can either serve them unmolded or into a container.
AS containers you can use cups, syringes (Halloween effect) and fruit skins to make wedges (that's a bit more complicated)
The easiest way would be to go with a container because unmolding them is a pain in the a**.
BUT unmolded nicely shaped transparent jello shots simply look better and make for a better presentation.
How to unmold?
If you want to use molds, use flexible silicone molds.
Secondly, to take the jello shots out of the molds I either recommend placing the molds for 3 seconds into warm water to help them detach easier from the silicon mold walls or you can freeze them.
Now hear me out! Freezing is actually the smarter option and that's how I unmold my jello shots in ease.
Just allow your jello shots to set, then place them into the freezer while they sit in the mold and take them out when they are frozen.
They will thaw well too and you can just serve them up a few hours later.
In a cool environment, jello shots take about 6-8 hours to set.
In a covered container in the fridge for about 7 days.
Place the molds into warm water for 3 seconds no more than that or they will melt. That way they will detach from the molds. Don't use detailed molds, plain heart or square-shaped molds are easier to unmold. Use silicone molds. You can also freeze your jello shots with the molds to take them out easily.
Those jello shots are great to surprise family and friends. I think they are great for Christmas, new year's, valentine's, a bachelorette party, a wedding, and similar occasions.
