Jello Punch

JELLO PUNCH(from Debbie J.)
1 (6oz) or 2 (3oz) pkg. jello
3 c. sugar
2 qts boiling water
3/4 c. lemon juice
1 (46oz) can pineapple juice
2 qts cold water
2 qts ginger ale
Choose the flavor of jello according to the color of punch desired. Dissolve jello and sugar in boiling water. Add remaining ingredients, EXCEPT GINGER ALE. Pour in containers and freeze. Just before serving, add ginger ale. Remove from freezer long enough to become slushy in your punch bowl. Then add the ginger ale. Keep other containers in the freezer for future use. Makes approximately 50 cups.
It is good to freeze these in gallon freezer bags. A person to hold the bag while you pour is helpful. Then stand them up in a large pot or other container until frozen to prevent spillage.
