Make Ahead Champagne Jello Shots

What I love the most about jello shots is that you can make them a day or two before you party and keep them in the refrigerator.

In order to make the champagne jello shots ahead of time, you should add the jello shot mixture to a small plastic cup that comes with a lid.

One quick tip about the garnish (the sprinkles). It’s best to add the sprinkles after the jello is set, preferably just before serving. The sprinkles will absorb the moisture from the jello, so you don’t want to add it too early. (I tried adding the edible glitter to the jello before it set, but I didn’t have good results.)

The gold flecks, star sprinkles, and bubbles all remind me of popping corks at New Year’s Eve!

A batch of champagne Jello shots are the perfect thing to serve as you ring in the new year.

You can even decorate the cups or serve them with some noise makers and year-themed hats!

But do you have to drink champagne Jello shots on New Year’s Eve?

No, that’s not the only holiday or reason to make them! Serve them if you’re celebrating a job promotion, a new engagement, a wedding, or the purchase of a new home.

Basically, if you have something to celebrate, make a batch of these fun bubbly jello shots!

What’s In Champagne Jello Shots

There are just a few simple ingredients in these jello shots. Here’s what you’ll need before you begin, along with why I used them.

  • Champagne: Some kind of sparkling wine is what gives the jello shots the zing!
  • Sugar: This sweetens the shots so they aren’t bitter.
  • Lemon Juice: This creates the chemical reaction in the jello mixture so it has the perfect texture.
  • Gelatin: In order to get the perfect flavor, use unflavored gelatin.
  • Ginger Ale: This adds even more bubbles and enhances the flavors of the sparkling wine.
  • Decorations: Use some kind of edible glitter, sugar crystals, or star sprinkles.

How To Make Non-Alcoholic Champagne Jello Shots

It’s really easy to make a non-alcoholic version of these tasty Jello Shots.

Instead of sparkling wine, make them with some sparkling white grape juice. Welch’s makes a fantastic version of this and they are easy to find around New Year’s Eve.

It also tastes delicious to use sparkling (non-alcoholic) cider instead of sparkling wine.

If you can’t find sparkling white grape juice, then I suggest using 1 1/2 cups of Ginger Ale and 1/2 a cup of white grape juice. And if you use white grape juice, only use 1/2 a tablespoon of sugar.
