Made this for New Year's toast and everyone loved the lava lamp concept. Even our son, the bartender was impressed. Now a tip for novices (like me:0): I used a Trader Joe recommend that was a Cava Brut and learned the hard way that I don't like Brut - which typically is very dry. Maybe this is common knowledge but I had no clue. Some liked it but I did not and think that especially for this specific combo a sweet sparkling wine would be much better. I contemplated dropping in a little cube of sugar to soften the blow but never got around to it. I also screwed up (trying to do to much prep for dinner party) and did not include the vodka in the jello which turned out to be a good thing. That way I was able to make the children Lava Lamps with 7-up (worked like a charm) and for the grown ups we just put a 1/2 pour of vodka on top of the jello before topping off with the bubbly. I would definitely try again with a sweet bubbly. Lots of fun. Cheers!
