Ringing in the New Year with Champagne Jello Shots

Sharing is caring!

As New Year’s Eve approaches, have you made plans yet? For me, it’s always been a day to stay home and celebrate with neighbors, creating lasting memories. Especially when my kids were little, our New Year’s parties were lively and unforgettable.

We’re still a close-knit group, even 20 years later. Here’s a mom hack for you: start the festivities early with the kids, and then transition to a more adult-oriented celebration later in the evening by setting the clock ahead 15 minutes. It worked wonders for us!

Now, let’s shift our focus from fond memories of past New Year’s celebrations to a delightful and festive recipe that’s sure to elevate your upcoming neighborhood party – presenting the irresistible Champagne Jello Shots!

The Perfect Party Treat: Champagne Jello Shots

For those still in the New Year’s party spirit, I have just the thing for you to bring to your neighborhood gathering – Champagne Jello Shots!

Not only are they festive and fun, but they also pack a punch, so drink responsibly.

Champagne is the perfect choice for New Year’s celebrations! This way takes it up a notch & adds a party element.

Serving Suggestions

I recommend serving these delightful shots in plastic champagne glasses, which you can easily order online.

Shot rings are another option that add an extra element of fun. However, be cautious with shot rings, as they can tip easily.

For a hassle-free experience, I prefer sticking with plastic glasses.

Champagne Jello Shots Recipe


  • 3 Cups Champagne
  • 1 TB Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 4 Envelopes Unflavored Gelatin (1 Box)
  • 1 Cup Vodka


  1. Prepare the Jello Mixture
    • In a medium saucepan, combine Champagne, Lemon Juice, and Sugar.
    • Heat over medium-low, whisking constantly until the sugar dissolves. (Avoid letting it boil)!
    • Add Gelatin and whisk until dissolved. If clumps form, continue heating or use the back of a spoon to dissolve them.
    • Add Vodka and whisk. Again, be sure not to let it boil.
  2. Chill and Set
    • Pour the dissolved mixture into a 9 x 13 Pyrex pan and refrigerate overnight or for a few days.
  3. Presentation
    • Cut the chilled mixture into bite-sized cubes and place at least three in each champagne glass for a visually appealing presentation.
  4. Enjoy Responsibly
    • If it’s a smaller gathering, consider pre-filling each glass, allowing guests to enjoy a few at a time.


As you prepare to ring in the New Year, consider adding a touch of sparkle to your celebration with these delightful Champagne Jello Shots.

Whether you’re reminiscing about past festivities or creating new memories, this recipe promises to be a hit at your neighborhood party.

So, gather your plastic glasses, mix up the bubbly concoction, and toast to a joyous and safe New Year’s Eve. Here’s to a year filled with laughter, love, and delicious moments. Happy New Year and cheers to a wonderful journey ahead!
