Mimosa Jello Shots

20130106-193314.jpg

I made the Mimosa Jello Shots for the New Year’s Eve party I hosted and was surprised how much of a hit these were. I saw this recipe on Pinterest but decided to put my own twist on it and use Orange flavored gelatin.  I will admit I did not get those perfectly cut squares that they show in their photo, instead I suggest using the clear plastic shots glasses for serving.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of Orange Gelatin (Jello)
  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • 1 cup of chilled champagne (I used Cava – Spanish Sparkling Wine)

Directions:

  1. Combine gelatin and boiling water in a bowl. Stirring until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Let it sit and come to room temperature.
  2. Slowly pour in the chilled champagne.
  3. Pour into clear shot glasses until they are about 3/4 filled and set in refrigerator to chill, about 4 hours.
  4. Sprinkle with shimmer sugar right before serving. Note, that the sugar dissolves quickly once on the jello.

Enjoying reliving the college days in a more grown up style.
