How To Make Champagne Jello Shots

Dec 31, 17 How To Make Champagne Jello Shots

When your early 20's jello shots get a makeover - Champagne Jello Shots #jelloshots #champagne #shots #cheers How to Make Champagne Jello Shots.

You know those jello party shots that you were introduced to in college? The ones that were in the small paper cups that you would squeeze into your mouths. Have too many of because you didn’t think they were strong. Until they snuck up on you and you realized they were indeed strong. These are the same ones just with a more grown up appearance because we can’t all stay in college forever. Well there’s that one friend, there’s always that one friend who doesn’t grow up. Sigh.

Also before the champagne police come around I used sparkling wine for this recipe. Don’t think I could bring myself to make these with actual champagne. That’s for sipping on properly, with your pinkies up. Duh.

If you’re like me and absolutely go bonkers for scallops you may want to increase the portion and make it into an entree. No shame in my scallop game.

Coquilles is the French word for scallops. Everything sounds better in romance languages amiright? Point. I’m serving Coquilles St. Jacques or I’m serving gratineed scallops. Right.

Momma's Apple PieMomma’s Apple Pie.

For me, this is the end all to apple pie recipes. I’ve been eating this pie my entire life. It was served at just about every holiday get together, and if it wasn’t well you definitely heard about it. It doesn’t get any better than this recipe because as the title implies it’s my Momma’s recipe. It’s taken me almost two years to be able to make this again, it’s still not any easier but it’s helping.

If you like classic, homemade, rustic pies that are piled so high with filling you practically need a bowl to eat them, you’ll love this recipe. Not that eating pie in a bowl is a bad idea, because a la mode is the way to go if you ask me.

Cranberry Apple Moscow Mule

This post is brought to you in partnership with Dixie Crystals. Opinions are my own.

Cranberry Apple Moscow Mule. Or Cran-Apple Moscow Mule if the first is too much of a tongue twister. If you’re hosting a holiday part or get together and need something that it’s fitting of the season and something that most everybody will love, give this cocktail a shake.

It takes advantage of fresh cranberries which are in season. Yes, yes they’re not just for turning into a delicious CRANBERRY SAUCE for Thanksgiving. They’re good for so much more. Including making a cranberry simple syrup which is part of what makes this cocktail so special.

Bourbon Balls.

Balls of bourbon-y goodness are what these are. Plain and simple. Depending on where you’re from in the country your version of bourbon balls might look a little different. i think there’s room for all the variations and I’m happy to taste them all. If you’d like to mail me some just drop me a message and I’ll get my address right over. Kidding. Kind of.

There was always some type of boozy ball treat at every holiday dessert table for as long as I can remember. Rum balls, vodka balls, liqueur balls and my favorite – bourbon balls. TThere was also inevitably one relative that over indulged thinking these were harmless. Um, yeah.
