Red, White, and Blue Sparkling Wine Gelatin Mold

Well Dined | Red, White, and Blue Sparkling Wine Gelatin Mold

I hope everyone had a fun holiday - we certainly did!  We grilled and played games (these ones to be precise) and watched Jaws (the original, duh).  My special contribution (because there always has to be one) was this gorgeous gelatin mold with champagne and fresh berries.  It is light, refreshing, not too strong, and totally gorgeous.  It looks really impressive, but it's actually pretty easy to make!

The base is sparkling wine (I used Prosecco), peach schnapps, plain gelatin, and a little sugar.  I'm trying to be really accurate in my title here, so I had to change it from "Champagne Jello Mold", which was my first instinct.  Jello isn't even a real word!  It's Jell-o, a brand name that got appropriated to mean all gelatin (like Popsicle or Coke, if you live in the south).
