Homemade champagne gummies are the perfect balance between elegance and fun! Serve these yummy gummies at your next event!
Have y’all tasted those champagne gummies from Sugarfina? They are, in a word, amazing.
And something about them just means it’s time to celebrate. Although I wouldn’t blame you for sitting on a couch alone and eating these like there’s no tomorrow (me_irl).
The occasions in which to make these are endless: bridal showers and bachelorettes, dinner parties, NYE parties, Oscar watching parties, girls’ night, cocktail parties and everything in between! Thankfully these bad boys are super easy to make.
As with most gummies you need 3 things: gelatin, a flavorful base, and sometimes sugar. In this case, our base is champagne (duh), but you can make gummies with anything from coffee to wine, fruit juice and more!
And whether or not you add sugar is completely up to you and your tastes. Because when you hear the word gummy, you immediately think sweet. However, there are lots of dry champagnes out there and I’d hate for you to go through this, try it and hate it.
So I say go with the bottle you like and make sure to taste it beforehand. You’ll have plenty left over to drink and you can judge its sweetness for this recipe.
What does it mean to let the gelatin ‘bloom”?
That’s when you mix gelatin with water and let it sit. The gelatin absorbs the water and expands. Doing this ensures the gelatin will dissolve easily. It also creates a really nice, clear gummy.
If you see a recipe with super cloudy gummies, it’s likely the gelatin was added directly to the base instead of “blooming.”
And another fun fact – if you want to get a little creative with this recipe and make mimosa gummies (omg yes) avoid fresh juices from papaya, kiwi, mango, and pineapple. They contain enzymes that destroy the gelatin. Instead, if you want these flavors, opt for canned juices as the pasteurization kills the gelatin-destroying enzymes.
In all, this recipe is easy and delicious – it’s just the right touch of fun and elegance for your next event!
Until next time. X
