Frozen Punch

Gloria Thiele taught me how to lead Sunday School openings and how to make the best frozen punch in the whole wide world!

4 c. boiling water

4 small or 2 large pkg. Jell-O (choose your flavor), dissolved

16 oz. lemon juice

2 (46 oz.) cans pineapple juice

8 large bottles ginger-ale

Combine 4 cups sugar and 4 cups water; bring to boil.  add to dissolved Jell-O.  Set aside to cool, then add lemon juice and pineapple juice.  Freeze in suitable containers.  To serve, place under hot water to loosen.  Put frozen punch in punch bowl; add 2 large bottles ginger-ale (add more ginger-ale as needed until slush is gone.)  Serves 100.
