Prosecco gelee

Happy New Year's Eve! As the name of this post suggests, we're celebrating the dawn of 2012 with some bubbly. Of course I wasn't content to let bubbles be bubbles so we're mixing it up a bit. Let's be frank - this is nothing more than an upscale jello shooter. This version can be served in shot glasses if you want a posh throwback to your university days or if you're bringing this to a New Year's Eve party. Alternatively, you can let it set in teacups or ramekins and serve it with berries or sorbet.  If you want to sweeten it up, add a tablespoon or two of sugar to a little warm water to dissolve and combine with the wine. Reserving some of the sparkling wine to top up the gelatin mixture helps keep some of the bubbles intact.

1 750 ml bottle of Prosecco or sparkling wine
2  packets gelatin (28 mg each)
1/2 cup water

Pour the water into a small saucepan and heat on high until it begins to simmer. Sprinkle the gelatin over top. Remove from heat and whisk until the gelatin dissolves, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Pour 1/2 of the bottle of wine into the bowl, reserving the other half. Don't be alarmed, it will fizz up. Whisk vigorously for a couple of minutes to make sure all the gelatin is incorporated. Add the rest of the bottle and gently stir to combine. Pour into shot glasses or other mold and refrigerate until set, about 2 hours.
