Christmas Slush Punch

Our family looks forward to this each Christmas!

3 (3 ounce) packages of strawberry flavored gelatin mix
9 cups boiling water
4 cups sugar
9 cups water
2 (46 fluid ounce) cans of pineapple juice
2 cups lemon juice
4 (2 liter) bottles ginger ale

In a large bowl, whisk together the strawberry gelatin mix and 9 cups of boiling water. Set aside. In a large pot, bring the remaining 9 cups of water to a boil. Stir in the sugar until dissolved. Pour the sugar water into the gelatin water, then stir in the pineapple juice and lemon juice, mixing well. Pour into four 1-gallon size resealable freezer bags, or pretty Bundt pans to freeze.

To make punch, place one of the frozen portions into a punch bowl, and pour ginger ale over.
