This recipe originally appeared over on PureWow. They're the best.

Sure, we’re well beyond our Jell-O shot years (cheers to college!), but we’re not above enjoying a boozy gelatin treat from time to time--especially in the summer. In this recipe, we classed it up ever so slightly by using sparkling rosé wine and vodka and serving each portion in a Champagne glass with a lemon twist. Oh, and by not drinking it in the basement of a fraternity house. (Cheers to adulthood!)

MAKES 15 SERVINGS

START TO FINISH: 1 HOUR 30 MINUTES (INCLUDES CHILLING TIME)

Ingredients

3 cups sparkling rosé, divided

4 envelopes (1 ounce) powdered gelatin

¼ cup sugar

1 cup vodka

Lemon peel, cut into strips for garnish

Directions

1. Place 15 small Champagne glasses on a baking sheet.

2. Pour 1½ cups of the rosé into a small pot. Sprinkle the gelatin over the surface and let it sit for 1 to 2 minutes.

3. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the gelatin. When the gelatin is dissolved, 1 to 2 minutes, stir in the sugar until it dissolves, 1 minute more.

4. Pour the mixture into a pitcher or large measuring cup with a spout. Stir in the remaining rosé and the vodka.

5. Pour the mixture evenly into the prepared glasses. Transfer the baking sheet to the refrigerator and chill until set, at least 1 hour (and up to overnight).

6. Keep chilled until ready to serve. To serve, garnish each glass with a strip of lemon peel.
