Frozen Jello Punch

Frozen Jello Punch from Marty's Musings

My family adores this frozen jello punch recipe! I’ve served at my daughter’s wedding, our 25th wedding anniversary, yearly Christmas parties, baby showers and birthday parties.

I often use a punch bowl but I have also used a beverage dispenser and love the look. However, honestly, you can’t dip out the fun slushy ice from this dispenser so it tastes better in a punch bowl. Your choice!

I’m hoping to make a family cookbook fairly soon and  the only thing my kids have requested over and over is my punch recipe! Not sure what that says about my cooking. My daughter loves it so much that she talked me into making 18 gallons of it for her wedding. Now that’s a mama’s love right there!

That’s it. Not too complicated unless you start doubling or multiplying by 1 1/2. When I previously made this for my large Christmas party (about 40 people) I would make 1 1/2 times this recipe. You can always add more Ginger Ale to make it go farther.

For Rachel’s wedding I had 32 2-liters ready to go! We ended with several bottles leftover and refroze the punch. My suggestion: don’t use grape jello because it ends up greyish pukey looking. Green or red is good.

People rave over this recipe! Seriously, it’s a guaranteed hit!

    This sounds amazing!! I am looking for a punch recipe that is somewhat orange/brown. I am trying to make the punch go with my colors for my wedding. They are rustic orange and ivory. The color of the punch in the picture looks like it would work. Any suggestions of what kind of jello to use to get the color I am looking for.

  43. Can you tell me how many servings this makes? And the 2 large bottles of Ginger Ale -are they 2 2 litter bottles?

    • Hi, Betty. It will probably serve 20 people or so and honestly depends if it’s a short party or a longer event. This punch is amazing and people like to drink it if they’re just standing around. The ginger ale is for 2-liter bottles but I always have an extra bottle on hand in case I’m running low on punch. Good luck!

      • My aunt has always made this kind of punch for showers in our community! It’s the best! Now I make it for the showers at my work and it is a huge hit every time. My favorite, in fact, is the grape version!! My aunt puts 2 cans of partially thawed grape juice (the kind that you buy frozen in the can) into the mix before you freeze it….the result is a GORGEOUS purple!!!
