It’s New Year’s Eve – the time for reflection, resolutions, and drinking your face off to celebrate another year gone by. What, just me? Well, anyway… I plan on ringing in the new year with these Mimosa Jello Shots. Let’s take the old college classic jello shots and make them classy, shall we?
What do you need to make these?
I’m going to keep this post short and sweet – just like this recipe! You only need five ingredients (a couple are optional) to produce these treats, and they’re sure to be a hit.
Why? Because they taste EXACTLY like mimosas. I’m not messing with you, they really do. I’ve made them layered with an orange base and a clear top, which is technically the opposite order that you want to layer a mimosa so it kind of bothers my OCD. But that’s okay, because a few of these will make me forget that I cared about the order!
Okay, that’s an exaggeration since there’s 2 cups of champagne in the entire recipe… but you catch my drift.
The layering is very subtle, but I wanted it to be. Frankly you could do without the top layer altogether to make your life easier if you’re pressed for time, but I enjoy the understated aesthetics of it.
So, feel free to eliminate the top layer if you want, but topping them with gold sprinkles is a MUST. It’s also a must to do it just before serving, because as you can see in the pictures they’ll start to melt into the jello a bit. They don’t taste any less delicious – they just won’t be as pretty.
Besides consuming (probably too many of) these bad boys, the boyfriend and I will be making extravagant tacos, mexican street corn and margaritas while we do a puzzle. I know – we are wild and crazy. Completely out of control.
I hope that you have a wonderful New Year’s Eve, no matter where you are and what you’re doing! Just don’t eat a bunch of these and drive – instead, eat a bunch of these and then find the nearest cute dog and have a snuggle party until morning.
