Champagne Jello Shots
I admit it, I love jello shots. Getting your cocktail in a throwback to a childhood favorite is fun. But jello shots as fun as they are, lack a bit of sophistication, don't you think?
I mean they were perfect for college. Even out of college. But now, I want something a bit more elegant. A bit more fancy. So, when I found these sparkling wine strawberry gelatin cups from Sweet Paul, I knew I just had to try them.
Champagne jello shots with strawberries in a pretty glass? Yes, please!
Elegant and Easy Dessert
This dessert is so elegant and so easy! You could easily had some blueberries and have a patriotic grown-up dessert for the Fourth of July! My mind is spinning with all the different variations of this! Expect to see some more here soon.
It's no surprise that I love these, since I am always looking for a dessert that requires no baking or fussy measuring. Even better it is make ahead, so it's perfect for entertaining.
I served these in pretty antique glasses, feel free to serve them in shot glasses!
Ingredients in these Strawberry Champagne Jello Shots
Sugar - use white sugar so that the color stays nice and clean.
Champagne - or your favorite sparkling wine. A Prosecco would be lovely.
Powdered gelatin - since I make a lot of panna cottas, I buy this in a big box. You could also use gelatin sheets.
Strawberries - they pair so beautifully with champagne, but you could use raspberries, blueberries, or peaches.
