Just a warning, the base is very thick and gelatinous. Adding the ginger ale will make it a normal texture. It wasn't bad, but not one of my favorites.

this had a weird texture because of the jello and was too sweet. overall it was not something I would ever do again.

This receipe is not only delicious, but a delight. I have made it a few times after discovering it in the Magazine "Taste of Home". My children delight helping me make it and drink it. I am making it this year for their preschool Halloween party.
