Equipment

  • Loaf pan
  • Medium saucepan

Ingredients

  • 8 oz champagne or cava
  • 4 oz gin of vodka
  • 2 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 oz simple Syrup
  • 2 packages gelatin I used the Knox brand
  • Edible gold leaf optional for garnishing

Instructions

  • Combine the simple syrup and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well, then pour into a medium saucepan and sprinkle with gelatin.
  • Allow the gelatin to soak for two minutes, then heat over medium low heat, stirring constantly, until the gelatin is completely dissolved (about 2 to 5 minutes).
  • Remove from heat and add the gin and Champagne, stirring well to blend. Pour into a very lightly greased loaf pan and chill until fully set, several hours or overnight.
  • Turn out the set gelatin onto parchment paper, then slice carefully (a thin knife like a boning knife works best) into rectangles or squares.
  • Garnish with edible gold leaf using a paintbrush (use one you can reserve for food only -- you don't want paint chemicals in your food!).
  • Gold leaf crumbles and sticks to things (like fingers!) easily, so be gentle -- just pull off tiny corners with the brush (they will stick), then place them gently on top of the gelée squares.

Notes

  • You can also make these for the kids with a mocktail version of ginger ale, sparkling cider, and lemon juice! 
  • In case you're wondering how to store jello shots, you can keep them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 7 to 10 days, but they're best served fresh!
