I discovered this punch a few years ago while skimming through some old Taste of Home magazines. This has become my favorite and is definitely a keeper! Every time I serve this drink I always get requests for the recipe. It's so easy to put together, the hardest part is probably remembering to pull it out of the freezer 2 hours before serving to allow for thawing. I haven't tried substituting any other kinds of jello yet but I'm sure you could get some really good flavor combos!
It's really good as an adult beverage as well! I like to substitute Parrot Bay passion fruit rum for part of the water. I recommend half rum, half water but you can always adjust if you want the punch a little stronger.
