Think of it as an edible version of The Odd Couple’s Felix and Oscar: refined Champagne alongside sloppy, juvenile Jello Shots. While they might not seem like an obvious duo, when forced to cohabitate, they bring out the best in each other, with Jello tempering Champagne’s elitist effervescence, and champers adding nuance and sophisticated flavor to the one-dimensional dessert.
That said, we didn’t use fruity name brand Jell-O in these recipes in order to let the sparkling wine shine. Which means these are the most Champagniest Champagne Jello Shots ever made. Serve them at your next hoity-toity cocktail party or wherever you feel the need to inject a little whimsy.
