Bloody Slush Punch

This is one of my favorite party drinks. It's perfectly slushy and delicious. I made it for my kids and their cousins and we named it Bloody Slush Punch because, you know, it's that time of year. Spooky treats and scary eats. It involves some freezing time, but it's well worth the wait.

*Important - I made (tried to make) it blue for my sister's boy baby shower... and you'll never guess what happened. Blue plus yellow equals green. So instead of a cute blue slush punch for the baby shower, we got a creepy goblin green. Learn from my mistake!! Play around with the flavors of gelatin for color and flavor but remember the pineapple juice is yellow!

Slush Punch
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 (3 ounce) packages strawberry flavored gelatin mix
  • 1 (46 fluid ounce) can pineapple juice
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 4 cups orange juice
  • 2 (2 liter) bottles lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverages

Directions
  1. Bring the sugar, water, and strawberry flavored gelatin to a boil in a large saucepan; boil for 3 minutes. Stir in the pineapple juice, lemon juice, and orange juice. Allow to cool. Divide mixture into 2 separate ziplock freezer bags and freeze overnight or for at least 6 -8 hours.
  2. Combine the contents of 1 container with 1 bottle of the lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage in a punch bowl; stir until slushy. Repeat with remaining portions as needed.
