Preparation time: 15 minutes. Freezing time: 4 hours. Thawing time: 1 hour.



Pour 2 cups of juice into a large pan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in gelatin until dissolved. Stir in remaining chilled juice. Pour mixture into two large, zip-top freezer bags. Lay bags flat in freezer. If desired, place them first in a 9″ x 13″ pan to prevent the liquid from leaking into the freezer. Freeze until solid (about 4 hours).

Thaw both bags at room temperature for about 1 hour or in the microwave until they’re slushy. Chop up any chunks with a spoon. Place slush in a punch bowl, gently stir in ginger ale, and serve immediately.

Yield: 14 cups. Serving size: 1 cup.
