Obviously you ring in the New Year by getting your drank on. Champagne is a necessity for when the clock strikes 12, so you best stock up. Sure, a good ole glass of bubbly is classy as it comes, but as they always say: out with the old and in with the new.

Because Champagne is expensive, we turned to the more budget-friendly Prosecco (#college) but feel free to substitute whatever bubbles you have.

This festive take on the classic Jell-O shot will make you feel oh-so-fancy while drinking (or should I say eating) bubbly all night long.
