Impress your friends and family with these Dazzling Champagne Jelly Flutes!!

What are your New Year’s traditions? So many cultures and families have so many interesting traditions, don’t they? I know that some folks eat noodles, some eat 12 grapes at midnight, and some eat anything sweet to start the New Year. Did you know that some break plates, throw a loaf of bread against the wall and some even flush out toilets at midnight?

And then there is  the tradition of eating and wearing everything round! I am all in favor of that! After all the holiday parties, wearing something round comes easy to me 🙂

No matter what the traditions, champagne toasts are ubiquitous at New Year’s parties and I absolutely love to make these Dazzling Champagne Jelly Flutes. They never fail to well…dazzle :). They can also be made with sparkling grape juice for a non-alcoholic version.

Here is how I make them. The recipe can be multiplied for the number of servings you need.

Dazzling Champagne Jelly Flutes

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients-

  • 1 ½ tablespoon Knox unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup 7 up- regular or diet
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup champagne
  • 2 strawberries, cut in half

 

To make the Dazzling Champagne Jelly Flutes-

  1. In a saucepan, combine the gelatin with the 7 up. Stir well. Add the sugar and stir again.
  2. Warm the sauce pan over low heat just until both the sugar and the gelatin are dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool.
  3. Add the champagne, stir and pour about half of the mixture into the flutes. Let the flutes chill in the refrigerator for an hour or so.
  4. Take the flutes out of the refrigerator. Drop in the strawberry halves and gently push them in with a skewer or chopstick.
  5. Whisk the rest of the champagne mixture with a wire whisk, until frothy. Top off the flutes with the frothy mixture and chill for at least 2 hours.
  6. Serve! Enjoy!

I am taking my Dazzling Champagne Jelly Flutes to party at Fiesta Friday. I am co-hosting this week, so do come and check out the amazing array of foods and recipes there!

Wishing you all a Happy New Year!

Love,

Sandhya

  9. Lovely! I’ll have mine with alcohol, please! We stay up to midnight and toast at the hour with a short countdown. This year we followed the Scottish custom of “arranging” the first visitor of the New Year to be a dark haired man (my future son in law stepped out the back door and came to the front!) That’s supposed to be luck. Happy New Year!!

  11. We didn’t get to do anything this year, since we were traveling but I still made sure we all ate donuts on New Year’s Day, that’s a must! 😄 I’m ready to adopt any new traditions, though, and I think I’ve found one in this champagne jelly. I’ll be making this from now on, what great idea! 👏👏 Thanks for cohosting, Sandhya! 😘😘

      It was my pleasure, Angie! I like the tradition of eating donuts 🙂
      i honestly liked the Champagne jelly more than the bubbly itself and am certainly going to make that a tradition!
