Ring in the new year with festive sparkling champagne jello shots! They are easy to make and are just about as classy as jello shots can get. The dryness of the champagne is balanced with sparkling lemonade. Amp up your NYE countdown with these tasty treats.
I recommend serving these in plastic shot glasses, but plastic champagne coupes might be cute too! These aren’t super strong jello shots, but they do have alcohol in them so keep them away from your kiddos!
While you can serve the champagne jello shots as is, you can also amp up the festiveness by topping them with white sanding sugar and edible gold stars. I also added some mini battery-powered LED lights to the serving platter to make the presentation glow.
