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 and halved grapes
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.
