Very good, but a little too sweet for my taste. I'm not sure why the recipe says to mix the jello/water and sugar/water separately - I did it all at the same time, and it was fine. This tastes really good with cherry jello and pineapple juice, lemon jello and orange juice, and orange jello and mango juice. It's kinda fun experimenting. Thanks! Read More

I think this punch could have been very good. I froze the ziplocks and they did not get slushy when I poured the ginger ale on. I think I froze them too long. I should have put them in the fridge the night before or left them at room temp a couple of hours before using. From the taste I think it would have been very tasty if the punch hadn't stayed frozen solid. The party started at noon and it wasn't until almost 3pm that the punch started to get slushy! My freezer is a regular one not a deep freezer but man it was frozen like the tundra! Read More

This punch was a big hit at a baby shower that I hosted. I had 25 people and made the recipe amount that was shown originally and had a ton left over. I also took it out of the freezer about 1 hour ahead of time to allow it to thaw a little bit so it wasn't a huge ice chunk in my punch bowl. Also it takes a good 8 hrs to really freeze up so making this a day ahead of time is a really good idea. Overall a very good punch:) Read More

This is fantastic! It's enough for a big crowd. I made this for Thanksgiving and I had about 28 people at the party. The kids loved it and drained the punch bowl. Bring out your bags to thaw at least 3-4 hours ahead and leave at least 2 on the kitchen counter and 2 in a cooler to thaw. I followed the recipe exactly. The slush is wonderful with the ginger ale. I didn't find it too sweet at all but juuuuust right! Don't change a thing! I will be serving this again for my Christmas Eve dinner. Thanks for a great punch recipe. Read More

I love this punch recipe and so do my friends and family. I use it every year at my Christmas open house. Now I print off copies of the recipe ahead of time because someone always asks for it. Read More

I made this with 7up instead of Ginger Ale. Each zip lock bag holds about 7 cups -- if you divide the full recipe evenly before freezing. I served it to High School Seniors. Everyone including the boys couldn't get enough - really yummy. You know when HS boys are asking for it it has to be good:) Try it. Read More

This was a hit at a bridal shower. I put half of the sugar in and it was plenty sweet. Next time I won't put any sugar in since the juice is sweet enough with the gelatin. I will make this again. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Very Yummy I'm a little scared to serve this at a formal party due to the red stain factor. I wonder how it would taste with orange jello? I would love to add the rum as suggested and will probably do that when I make this for a more informal party in my home. If I serve it and it goes over I'll add some more notes... The timing was a little difficult but this made plenty of punch for 30 people plus some for an "after" party with the rum added later to do invitations no one spilled all over even on the invitations lol. I took the frozen zip-lok bags of punch out early-about 8 AM then put them in a large igloo beverage cooler to transport with the Ginger ale @ 9 AM and got a good consistency by the time lunch was served. Had to bust up the big hunks of frozen stuff but it worked out ok. Better plan on a punch bowl. You can't pour this well or use a spiggout because it filter out all the slushy ice which is key in the overall enjoyment of the beverage. Overall a little complicated but good pay-off factor.

Used this at a retirement party it was a hit. Only change was to use half of the sugar... also ended up using a mallet to break up the frozen part before putting it in the punch bowl. Read More
