Everyone will love this frozen jello punch, a favorite easy recipe to prepare ahead of time for weddings, parties and showers with friends and family!
Every mom needs to have a few special recipes that she is famous for.
Another one that is at the top of the list? This frozen jello punch recipe!
I often use a punch bowl but I have also used a beverage dispenser and love the look. (However, honestly, you can’t dip out the fun slushy ice from this dispenser so it tastes better in a punch bowl. Your choice!)
I’m hoping to make a family cookbook fairly soon and the only thing my kids have requested over and over is my punch recipe! Not sure what that says about my cooking.
My oldest 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!
Quick tips for making this Frozen Jello Punch:
- Use any flavor jello but I prefer red or green.
- Can be served in a beverage dispenser or punch bowl.
- Make ahead and freeze to save preparation time.
- Freeze in inexpensive plastic pitcher instead of leftover milk jugs.
This recipe is not too complicated unless you start doubling or multiplying by 1 1/2.
When I previously made 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 with my 18 gallons of the frozen mixture. We ended with several bottles leftover and refroze the punch.
My suggestion: don’t use grape jello because it ends up greyish pukey looking. Fortunately we started several weeks ahead of time to learn that lesson! Green or red is good.
Also, it’s better to freeze it in inexpensive plastic pitchers instead of gallons milk jugs. My sweet friends who helped at the wedding had to cut open the tops of the jugs to get the punch into the dispensers we used. Lesson learned!
People rave over this recipe! Seriously, it’s a guaranteed hit!
