Instructions: Dissolve 3 oz. Jello (strawberry, tropical punch, orange pineapple, etc.)
in 1 cup boiling water. Stir in 2 cups sugar, 4 cups cold water, and a 46 oz can of unsweetened pineapple juice. Freeze in containers (overnight is best) to be slushy. Put frozen mixture in punch bowl and add a 2 liter bottle of 7-UP just before serving. I use the ladel and stir to chop of frozen mixture into a type of slush.
I have used diet 7-UP or diet Sprite or Diet Slice in place of regular soda since the sugar and jello make it really sweet. For receptions or weddings you can also use food coloring in a neutral jello or light color jello such as orange pineapple and can color this to any color. A friend wanted it to be purple because of a colors in her wedding so she used grape jello but the yellow pineapple juice turned it brown - to save the color she added red and blue until she got the color she wanted. Another example is that I use the orange pineapple and use green food coloring (instead of using lime jello because of the flavor) to get a punch for halloween. Hope you enjoy!
