a little bubbly to add to the fun!

I have been thinking of a couple of new ideas for Jell-O shots outside of the normal, and have been stuck for a while…until a recent grocery trip. I always have to make my way to the Jell-O section of the baking isle and this time I came across peach flavored. I haven’t seen this before and instantly grabbed the box and began thinking about what I could add to it for a shot. **Lightbulb** we have champagne in the fridge, I am going to make a Peach Bellini Jell-O shot. I must admit I was nervous having never used champagne before for a Jell-O shot, but let me be the first to tell you, it was pretty great!


Peach Bellini

1 package peach flavored jell-o

1 cup boiling water

1 cup (and maybe an extra splash or two) champagne


Per usual, add a cup of boiling water to the Jell-O mix and stir until dissolved. Wait a few minutes before adding one cup of champagne. Champagne, like soda, has a good amount of carbonation/ bubbles so when you pour it into the measuring cup be sure to let it settle a little so that your measurement is accurate. I added an extra into the bowl as well, since champagne isn’t as strong as some of the other alcohols I use, it isn’t overpowering even if you add a little extra. I chose to go with a mini martini glass for these shots, but you can use anything. Put into the fridge to solidify before enjoying.


Once the Jell-O has formed, enjoy! Be prepared to taste the bubbles! Definitely a fun twist on the typical Jell-O shot! And light enough…hosting a brunch? I highly recommend this treat

Orange creamsicle


Creamsicle in a Jell-O shot

As the weather is slowly getting warmer, thoughts of spring and summer are coming to mind. And with those thoughts comes the desire for ice cream, popsicles, and delicious drinks….or all combined into one.

And so…I give you the creamsicle.

Orange Creamsicle Jell-O Shot

1 packet orange jell-o

1 cup Boiling Water

1 cup Vanilla Vodka

Pour the boiling water into a bowl with the orange jell-o and mix until dissolved; let sit for a minute. Add 1 cup of vanilla vodka and mix. Place into your shot glasses and put in the fridge to solidify. There is a bite at the end where the vanilla comes into play, but it definitely adds to the shot.

Another idea for this shot would be to add whipped cream (or adult whipped cream) before enjoying!
