Sparkling Champagne Jello

In an effort to make more ‘from scratch’ jello recipes I’ve employed Knox unflavored gelatine to make this mold with ginger ale, champagne, sliced strawberries, and grapes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3 tablespoons (3 envelopes) of unflavored gelatin powder
2 cups cold water
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups cold champagne
1 1/2 cup cold ginger ale
1 cup sliced strawberries

In a saucepan, sprinkle gelatin evenly over cold water and allow the gelatin to absorb the water for two minutes. Bring water to a boil and stir well until gelatin is fully dissolved.

Transfer gelatin into a large bowl and stir in sugar until dissolved. Stir in champagne and ginger ale. Refrigerate until thickened to the consistency of a gel. Fold in strawberries and grapes. Spoon into a 7cup mold. Refrigerate until firm. Unmold and serve.

  1. it’s SUPER PRETTY! when will you be ready to publish recipes? can i get just one? or are you fishing for a publisher for a real book?

    • I can’t give away all my secrets just yet… I’m holding out for that Jello endorsement deal. But for you I can give up a secret or two. :)

      • I would love the recipe for this jello dessert when you’re ready to share!

      • In a medium mixing bowl add two envelopes of Knox to two cups boiling water and ½ cup to 1 cup of sugar (depending on taste – I used only ½ cup sugar for this and I thought it could have been a little sweeter). Stir two minutes until dissolved. Add 3/4 cup of champagne (sweet, rather than dry champagne works best) and ¾ cup ginger ale (or any ratio of ginger ale and champagne you want totaling 1 ½ cups). Put the bowl in the freezer until thickened to a gel. Then stir in chopped strawberries and grapes (or whatever fruit you want) and spoon into mold. Allow to set over night.

  11. Hi There, so when you say, ” Then stir in chopped strawberries and grapes (or whatever fruit you want) and spoon into mold.” you mean, stir into the already set gelatine/ ginger ale/ champagne?

    • Yes. Refrigerate the mixture until it thickens to the consistency of a gel before folding in the strawberries and grapes.
