I’m hoping to make a family cookbook fairly soon but the only thing my kids have requested over and over is my punch recipe! Not sure what that says about my cooking. My daughter loves it so much that she talked me into making 18 gallons of it for her wedding. Now that’s a mama’s love right there!
3 small pkg. jello (any flavor)
9 cups boiling water
Dissolve jello in water and set aside.
4 cups sugar
4 cups water
Boil and add to jello.
Cool and add:
16 oz. bottle lemon juice
2 46 oz. cans pineapple juice
Mix all together and freeze.
When ready to use, slush up and add 2 large bottles Ginger Ale.
That’s it. Not too complicated unless you start doubling or multiplying by 1 1/2. When I used to make this for my large Christmas party (about 40 people) I would make 1 1/2 times this recipe. You can always add more Ginger Ale to make it go farther. For Rachel’s wedding I had 32 2-liters ready to go! We ended with several bottles leftover and refroze the punch. My suggestion: don’t use grape jello because it ends up greyish pukey looking. Green or red is good. People rave over this recipe.
