Strawberry Champagne Jello Shots

I love a good champagne toast on New Years Eve, but sometimes a fun jello shot is called for! I mixed two great flavors into a creative gelatin dessert that is sure to please your festive guests! Leave your guests wanting for more classy jello shots. They’ll love the toasty champagne flavor mixed with the fresh strawberry puree. These Strawberry Champagne Jello Shots are stunning to serve and will totally impress everyone at your party!

I would however suggest that you buy a cheaper bottle for making these and save the more expensive champagne for the actual champagne glass.

My husband scolded me for using the “good stuff” when I was in the process of making these. We ended up drinking the whole bottle for lunch while we ate brie and crackers with salami and pistachio nuts. I was a bit lit after that lunch, but that’s ok. The next day  I was forced to go to the store and buy a replacement bottle.

You can change out the fruit flavor at the bottom if you wish.  I’m sure blueberry or raspberry would be great as well. Don’t use citrus fruit because it won’t firm up correctly.

Also, these are on the bigger  size. I squeezed it all into an 8×8 dish.  There was no way that the pretty toothpick was going to pick up that jello. It was really just there for the effect. If you chill it in a 9×13 pan the jello will be thinner and therefore easier to serve.

My guests LOVED this amazing Jewel Cake that is studded with tropical jello pieces and filled with a pineapple sweetened whipped cream. It was perfect for my party!

Ingredients

For the Strawberry Layer

  • 1/2 C water
  • 2 packets gelatin
  • 2 C strawberries
  • 1/2 C sugar

For the Champagne Layer

  • 3 packets gelatin
  • 2 C water

FOR THE STRAWBERRY LAYER

  1. Place the water into a small bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over top to soften.

  3. Transfer the strawberry mixture to a 9x13 baking dish and place into the fridge for 3 hours to harden.

FOR THE CHAMPAGNE LAYER

  1. Sprinkle the gelatin over the water to soften.
  2. Bring the water to a boil and stir until the gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat. Add in sugar and stir until it's dissolved.
  3. Pour in the champagne and ginger ale and then top off the strawberry layer.
  4. Refrigerate overnight. Cut and serve.

silly question.... when you say 5 packets of gelatin are needed, that means 5 boxes of jello - correct?

The box of Knox gelatin hold 4 packets. Each packet is 1/4 ounce. That is not a box of jello. It's the unflavored gelatin.

I'm disappointed because I was going to make these tonight, and it says that there is a total of 40 min prep/cooking time. However after reading the directions, there is also 3 hours of cooling time. That should be stated in prep time

I'm sorry that these didn't work for your timeline. Any gelatin based treat takes several hours to set up. You could have made the recipe and just combined the strawberry layer with the champagne layer. The recipe is clear that it's to be made the day before and require refrigeration overnight. Hopefully you'll have another event to make these for in the future.

Hi Jenn- I hope you went ahead and put them into shot cups! It would totally work, however, I don't know how many cups you'd need.

How many jello shots would you say this made? I'm pouring mine into little plastic cups for easy individual serving, but curious how many you think this recipe would make?

No clue. Sorry. I'd guess that the total recipe makes about 5 cups of fluid so that would be close to 40 oz. I hope that you made them and loved them in the shot cups.
