This recipe was created years ago for church bridal and baby showers, the result of the hostess committee sharing ideas. We would use different flavored gelatins to color-coordinate with the decor of the occasion. I especially liked the flavors and colors of lemon and pineapple and developed them into this recipe, which I like to use at home.
A cold glass of refreshing punch really brightens a brunch. It's nice to serve a crisp beverage like this that's more spectacular than plain juice. With bananas, orange juice and lemonade, it can add tropical flair to a winter day.

As social chair one year during college, I tried to come up with a more interesting beverage than the usual cranberry juice and lemon-lime soda. This pastel punch was always a hit at receptions and parties.
