Mimosa Jell-o (jelly) Shots

About: Check out my etsy shop too! etsy.com/shop/scoochmaroo

Try this fun twist on the Jell-shot for your next party - the mimosa Jell-o shot!  The combination of champagne and orange juice is one of my favorites - so I knew I had to try it in jelly shot form.  I thought about combining champagne + orange flavored Jell-o, but decided to try and capture all of the fresh flavors I could.  The choice is yours - in my opinion, sparkling wine is the perfect addition to any flavor Jell-o!

1 1/2 cups orange juice
1 tbsp sugar
3 envelopes unflavored (Knox) gelatin
1 1/2 cups champagne
Strawberries to garnish

Pour juice and sugar into small saucepan.  Sprinkle with gelatin and let it bloom for a few minutes.  Heat over low heat and stir gently until gelatin is dissolved.  Remove from heat and stir in champagne.  Pour into 2 oz. plastic cups and refrigerate. 

If using strawberries, clean and slice the berries.  After the jell-o shots have chilled for ~30 minutes, add the berries.  This way they'll be slightly suspended in the mixture.

    Mimosa's are my favorite Sunday brunch cocktail!These are an interesting twist. I'll have to try them soon. I haven't used gelatin that much. Do you think I could get away with 1 or 2 packets or is three the mandatory for the recipe to work?

    How much gelatine you use will impact how firm the final product is. So if you want them like real Jell-o shots, I would use at least two. If you just want to serve some spiked gelatine, one will be fine! In fact, it might be delightful!
