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.

"Everyone at the bridal shower RAVED about this punch. They said it was very refreshing and wasn't too sweet the way some punches are. It was a hit!"

"Everyone loved this punch however I wasn't able to find pineapple gelatin so used the tropical fusion flavor in place of it."
