Shots of Mimosa Jello

Your favorite brunch drink has been transformed into a dessert! For a stylish 21+ party snack, mix bubbly champagne and fresh orange juice with the traditional college staple, jello shots. Check out all of my other champagne-themed dishes that are ideal for New Year’s Eve!

It’s New Year’s Eve, which means it’s time to reflect, make goals, and drink your face off in celebration of another year gone by. Is it just me? However, I’m going to ring in the new year with these Mimosa Jello Shots. Let’s make the old college classic jello shots sophisticated, shall we?

Ingredients for mimosa jello shots

Like this recipe, I’m going to make this article short and sweet! These sweets need just five ingredients (a few are optional) and are guaranteed to be a hit:

Bottom layer:

  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice with no pulp
  • 1teaspoonsugar
  • 2 envelopes Knox unflavored gelatin
  • 1cupchampagne
  • 1 tsp triple sec

Top layer:

  • 1cupchampagne,divided
  • 1 envelope Knox gelatin, unflavored
  • 1tablespoonsugar
  • Garnish with gold sprinkles

Why? Because they Precisely taste like mimosas. I’m not playing games with you; they actually do. I’ve constructed them with an orange base and a clear top, which is technically the reverse order that you should layer a mimosa, which irritates my OCD.

But that’s OK since a couple of them will help me forget about the order!

Admittedly, that’s an exaggeration since the whole recipe contains 2 cups of champagne, but you get the idea.

The layering is incredibly subtle, which is exactly what I intended. To be honest, if you’re tight for time, you could skip the top layer entirely, but I like the subtle aesthetics of it.

Hence, feel free to skip the top layer if you choose, but gold sprinkles are a must. It’s also important to do it just before serving, since as you can see in the photos, they’ll start to melt into the jello.

They will not taste any less good, but they will not be as visually appealing.

In addition to devouring (probably far too many of) these bad boys, the boyfriend and I will be preparing lavish tacos, Mexican street corn, and margaritas while doing a puzzle. I know we’re out of our minds. Totally out of control.

I wish you a fantastic New Year’s Eve, no matter where you are or what you are doing! Instead of eating a lot of them and driving, eat a bunch of these and then go locate a nice dog and have a cuddle party till dawn.
