Champagne Strawberry Jello

Sometimes it’s hard to decide or know what type of food to bring to a party, especially a birthday potluck party. Thanks to Pinterest! The scratching-your-head day is gone. I couldn’t be more happier to have found this recipe. Of course, it involves alcohol. You can’t go wrong for bringing alcohol to a party. Well, it’s not a party if it doesn’t involve alcohol. Right?! But you don’t want your friends to be wasted either. This recipe is perfect. Just a little of bubbly. Just a little of romantic. Just a little of prettiness. And not to mention, it’s A LOT of DELICIOUSNESS!! Bring it to your next party and your guests will be wowed.

Adopted from Hello, Jell-O! by Victoria Belange
Serving: 7 – 10 molds
Ingredients:
3 tablespoons or 3 envelopes of unflavored gelatin powder
2 cups cold water
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups cold champagne
1 1/2 cups cold ginger ale
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries

Preparations:
In a saucepan, sprinkle the gelatin evenly over the cold water and allow the gelatin to absorb the water for 2 minutes.

Bring the water with the gelatin powder to a boil over high heat while stirring until the gelatin is fully dissolved. Remove from the heat.

Transfer the gelatin mixture to a bowl, add the sugar, and stir until dissolved. Then, stir in the champagne and ginger ale.

Refrigerate until thickened a bit. Make sure the mixture is still partially liquid. Fold in the strawberries. Spoon into 7 to 10 individual molds or a big mold. The smaller the mold the firmer the jello will be. Remember, metal mold acquire firmer jello than glass mold. Refrigerate until firm. Unmold and serve.

To unmold, run a knife around the top of the jello and put it in a bath of warm water for 10 – 20 seconds. Flip it over and shake it or give it a light pat.

Make some of these for your loved ones on Valentine’s Day and they will be swooned away and in cloud 9.

    I made them and LOVE them, just the way they are Thank you, so much! Just Wondering if I could add a little vodka to make a bit a bit stronger in alcohol, or less gingerale? Although I love them the way they are!

      Of course, you could replace some of the liquid called for ginger ale of champagne with vodka. Try it and sure let me know how you like it.

    I tried making these and they never set. What is meant by 3 tablespoons OR 3 envelops of gelatin powder. 3 envelops is a lot more then 3 tablespoons. Help.
