Sparkling Fruit Punch

I love this punch for so many reasons: it's easy, freezes well, makes a lot, uses a variety of healthy juices, and it tastes amazing. I love making this for parties, bridal and baby showers and special occasions. I usually make two separate batches and leave one in the freezer for a few weeks until I need it. I can honestly say that the only bad thing about this recipe is that it is addicting and I tend to drink a little too much of it.


  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 (3 oz) package strawberry jello
  • 32 oz. pineapple juice (4 cups)
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1 (2-liter) bottle Sprite, 7-UP or Ginger Ale

Combine sugar, water and strawberry jello in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in pineapple juice, lemon juice and orange juice until combined. Cool, and pour into a large gallon-size ziploc bag. Put in freezer overnight or longer. When ready to serve, thaw for 1 to 2 hours. Put in punch bowl and pour soda over top, stirring gently to break up large pieces of slush. Serve immediately.

Note: This recipe can be frozen for several months until ready to use.
