Fun recipe for champagne jello shots. While it doesn’t have to be only on New Year’s Eve, I can’t think of a better time to serve them! 

How to make simple syrup: Simple syrup is just 1 part water to 1 part sugar. Combine in a medium saucepan and heat to a boil while stirring until sugar is dissolved! In this recipe, I also add a couple of squeezes of lime.

In fact, I think champagne jello shots are a brilliant way to celebrate just about anything. While a bottle of champagne is fun, this is a great way to serve champagne without all the champagne flutes and worrying about it going flat.

Like we said, just keep a tab on how many of these champagne jello shots you have, as they do have a good amount of alcohol + sugar which can sneak up on you and even lead to a hangover! If you want to make these less buzzy, you can always halve the amount of vodka.
