How To Make These Pink Champagne Jello Shots

If you want an easy make ahead shot recipe, you can’t get better than jello shots. Once the mainstay of frat parties, this scaled up version are just as easy to make. 

To make these jello shots you just need the following ingredients:

  • Champagne (pink for pink jello shots)
  • Gelatin
  • Sugar
  • Lemon Juice
  • Edible glitter

You can buy edible glitter in various colors.

For my shots, I used this silver version that I got on Amazon.  A little goes a long way when it comes to edible glitter so don’t go crazy! 

Do These Shots Contain Jello?

pink champagne jello shotsAlthough they are called jello shots, these delicious treats don’t actually contain jello as we know it. For this recipe, you need plain gelatin. 

 You can buy gelatin in the same place as the jello at your local store but if you don’t find it there, check the baking aisle. 

To make these pink champagne jello shots, I used one of the small bottles of Henkell Piccolo Rose sparkling wine.

One of these small bottles is roughly a cup of champagne so they are perfect for making about 7 jello shots. 

Simply double or triple the recipe to make more jello shots for your guests. 

You can of course, use any kind of pink sparkling wine that you choose for these shots but you don’t need to use your best champagne. Save that for your toasts!

What To Put Your Jello Shots In

You can use plastic shot glasses or small plastic champagne flutes for your jello shots. Basically anything that would work for a mousse or small treat will work too. 

I do not recommend using glass shot glasses as it will be hard to get the jello shot out of the glass. 

Another idea is to make your pink champagne jello shots in a flat pan like the ones you would use to make squares when baking. 

You can then cut and slice your jello shots into squares and serve on a platter. 

Can you use ice cube trays for Jello shots?

 Yes! You can use fun shaped ice cube molds or even plain old ice cube trays for your jello shots.
Silicone molds will work better than hard plastic when it comes to getting the shots out to put on a plate.

Pink Champagne Jello Shots FAQ

Can I get drunk off Jello shots?

 pink champagne jello shots


Jello shots are often misleading because they contain less alcohol than your average shot.

These champagne jello shots in particular are not too high in alcohol as they use champagne rather than a liqueur such as vodka. 

One cup of champagne is used to make approximately 7 shots in this recipe so you are only getting a tiny amount of champagne in each shot, although they definitely taste strong!

What happens if you put too much alcohol in Jello shots?

So, anyone who didn’t like the answer above is now wondering if they can put more alcohol into their pink champagne jello shots. 

Unfortunately, if you overdo the champagne, you risk your jello not setting at all so its best to stick to the ratios in the recipe.
