Our easy Mimosa Jello Shots recipe is made with just 4 ingredients. But feel free to dress it up with a dollop of whipped cream on top for a festive touch. 

I don’t say this often, but these mimosa shots are almost too pretty to eat! The vibrant orange color with a swirl of whipped topping and a fresh orange slice garnish is a treat for the eyes.

These are one of my most-requested Jell-o shot flavors. They’re perfect for a classy party, summer get-together, boozy brunch, wedding shower or bachelorette party.

Not only are they bursting with flavor, but the color is so vibrant and they look great when they are all lined up on a serving tray. The same goes for my Blue Hawaiian Jello Shots, Pink Starburst Jello Shots and Tequila Sunrise Jello Shots

This recipe is a twist on the traditional mimosa which usually consists of champagne and orange juice. Our secret ingredient is going to be orange Jello! It’s full of citrus flavor and helps to give each shot cup a beautiful color. 

This recipe is intended for adults aged 21+. We’ve included directions for an alcohol-free version for your non-drinking and younger guests below.

How to Make Mimosa Jello Shots with Champagne

Line the plastic shot cups on a baking sheet and set them aside. 

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the orange Jell-O with the boiling water and stir until the gelatin has fully dissolved.

Stir together the champagne and cold water, then pour it into the Jello mixture.

Use an injector or a spouted cup to fill each shot cup ¾ of the way full. 

Place baking tray of shots in the fridge for at least 2 hours or until they have completely set.

Just before serving, remove shots from refrigerator and pipe on the whipped cream if using. Finish with an orange slice garnish if desired. 

Tips for Making 

  • Instead of champagne, you can use Prosecco
  • Do not add more champagne than what’s listed in the recipe or the Jello will not set up properly. 
  • Garnish just before serving so the whipped cream holds its shape. 
  • To make the shots more festive (this is great for special parties) sprinkle the tops with edible glitter just before serving. Do this at the last minute so it doesn’t settle into the shots.
  • You can also make the shots on a rimmed baking sheet instead of using individual cups. After the gelatin mixture has set up cut into cubes for serving. 
  • For the whipped cream, you can use Cool Whip or make a homemade batch. If you don’t have an icing tip and bag, simply add whipped cream to a large Ziploc bag and seal closed. Cut a corner of the bag and pipe/swirl the cream onto each cup.

Mimosa Mocktail Shots (Alcohol-free Version)

These jello shots are for adults only (21 years and up), but if you want to serve a non-alcoholic version, use sparkling lemon water or ginger ale in place of the champagne.  

Storing Instructions 

Mimosa orange Jello shots can be prepared in advance. They will last for up to 1 week in the refrigerator with the lids on and without the garnish.
