Champagne is the drink of choice on New Year’s Eve, and there’s nothing like toasting to the year behind you while looking to the year ahead. If you want to impress your guests at your NYE’s gathering this year, look no further.
Alcoholic gelatin shots might remind you of your old college party days, but it’s still one of the most fun ways to drink. It’s time to class “jello shots” up with a little champagne. Champagne gelation shots represent an elegant way to sip your favorite bubbly. Cheers to the new you, the one who adds gold flakes to everything in 2018.
