Things You’ll Need

  • 2 cups water (1 cup room temperature and 1 cup cold)

  • 4 packets unflavored gelatin

  • 1 1/4 cups sugar

  • 1 1/2 cups extra dry champagne

  • 1 1/4 cups club soda, flavored seltzer, or ginger ale

Ingredients for champagne jello shots


To avoid foam and bubbles on top of your jello shots, use flat champagne.

Step 1

Bring 1 cup of water to a boil.

As the water reaches a boil, combine the gelatin and remaining 1 cup cold water in a large stainless steel bowl. Mix and let sit for 1 minute.

Step 2

Add 1 cup boiling water and mix well. Stir in the sugar and mix until dissolved.

You can skim off the foam or bubbles with a measuring cup.

Work quickly! The gelatin won't take long to solidify. If this happens, you can warm it over a double broiler. To make one, fill 1/3 of a small pot with water. Place the bowl on top of the pot, making sure the bottom doesn't touch the water. Bring the water to a boil. As the bowl warms up, continuously stir the mixture until it is liquid again.

Step 4

Pour the mixture into a container or multiple containers. For this batch, we poured the entire mixture into a 9×13-inch dish.

Step 5

Before serving, slice into cubes and garnish with edible glitter or sprinkles. Place them on a dish or in small bowls.
