Festive Strawberry Slushy Punch~With, Or Withour Champagne



I served this at a Christmas Open House one year and 
it was consumed faster than the desserts of appetizers. 
It is really a delightful punch!





Berried Treasure Slushy Punch

2 1/2 cups sugar
6 cups water
2 3-ounce packages of strawberry flavored Jell-O
1 46-fluid ounce can of pineapple juice
2/3 cup lemon juice
1 quart orange juice
2 2-liter bottles of 7-Up

  • Bring the sugar, water, and strawberry Jell-O to a boil in a large saucepan; boil for three minutes.
  • Stir in the pineapple juice, lemon juice, and orange juice.
  • Divide the mixture into two separate containers and freeze (May use decorative gelatin mold)
  • Combine the contents of 1 container with one bottle of the 7-Up in a punch bowl.  Stir until slushy.
  • Repeat with the remaining portion as needed.

This punch is delightful when added to champagne in a champagne glass.  Add a cranberry and mint sprig for a Christmassy look! Or, add a flower or strawberry with a mint sprig. It is absolutely delightful!
