This is one of my Dad's favorite drinks.  And since my Dad & Mom were coming to stay with us this last weekend Kyla and I decided to make it for him.  It was a perfect thirst quencher for the hot day!

4 1/4 cups water, divided
2 cups sugar
1 envelope unflavored gelatin (knox, for example)
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 cups pineapple juice
food coloring
7-up or Gingerale

Dessolved gelatin in 1/4 cup of water.  Set aside.  While the gelatin in dissolving, boil 1 cup of water.  Add the sugar to the boiling water and boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.  Add the dissolved gelatin, 3 cups water, lemon juice, pineapple juice, and food coloring.  (Green works the best, but you can try any color you'd like!)  Pour into shallow pans and freeze (cake pan works great!) overnight.

When ready to serve, scrape the frape with a metal spoon and fill up your glasses.  Then pour in the 7-up or Gingerale and you've got yourself a drink like no other!:)

Enjoy this on these last few hot summer days we have left!:(

This was served at almost every wedding for years and years. I think we had it at ours. It's delicious. Thanks for posting it.

Yeah, I remember it being colored to match everyone's wedding colors (lots of pastel's back then!):) This drink is timeless though...still so good!
