Me and my friends made this up during a party we gave about 10 or so years ago. We were drinking champagne and shooting gelatin shots. We chunked up a gelatin shot and added some to a glass of champagne. A few years later I mentioned this idea to some guests at the restaurant where I was bartending. About 3 months later a local bar was advertising these drinks.

Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the gelatin mix and boiling water until completely dissolved, about 2 minutes. Stir in vodka. Pour the liquid into small paper cups or portion cups. Chill until set, at least 2 hours.

  • Pour champagne into glasses. Break up the gelatin with a fork, and pour into a glass of champagne. A little stir gives it some 'lava' action. Drink with caution, these will sneak up on you.

These are alot of fun. The key to keeping it look like a lava lamp is to break the jello shot up really well with a fork. I put it in the flute first mashed it then added the champagne beautiful. Thanks! Read More

I think you have to be a jello shot fan to like this drink. I don't like jello shots and thought this drink was gross. Sorry. But what I did do for the kids was make regular jello (red or blue) and add it to Sprite. They loved it!! Read More

Let the jello sit at rom temp for just a little bit. It will rise to the top better if it is not fresh from the fridge. Read More
