Strawberry Slush

This weekend we had a few friends over and I really wanted a punch recipe. After searching the web for an hour I asked my friend that gave me the sopapilla cheesecake recipe from his mom. Boy was his mom's punch recipe good. It is a must for any social gathering. My friend isn't sure where it came from but here it is:

1 small box Strawberry Jello
4 cups hot water
2 cups sugar
1 large can pineapple juice (the real tall can)
1 large can frozen lemonade

Canada Dry Gingerale

Mix Jello and water until Jello is dissolved. Add remaining ingredients except the gingerale. Freeze. When frozen solid, set out to slightly soften for about 2 hours. Stir in Gingerale until it tastes the way you like it. Probably at least a 2 liter jug, but put it in a about half at a time. Stir into slush and add gingerale as needed.

Be sure you leave it in the freezer for close to 24 hours and then set it out to soften a little while before you are ready to mix it.
