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.
