We have been in the mood for Jello lately, and we had some canned peach slices, so I made it this morning. They sell a very spicy ginger ale here (it is made near here) called Blenheim Ginger Ale. The regular has quite a bite to it, and the hot is definitely hot.* I don't care much for either just to drink, but they make a good punch base.
Well, when I made the Jello I decided to use some of the hot ginger ale in place of some of the water. I wanted a large batch, and I didn't have two of the same flavor Jello, so I used sugar free mixed fruit and sugar free black cherry. I used a bottle of the hot ginger ale and made up the rest of the 2 cups with the syrup from the lite peaches.
Wow! It turned out so good! I have had Jello made with pop before, and it was good, but this is different than most. It has a nice little bite to it. Very refreshing!
*I sent some Blenheim Ginger Ale to my family in California several years ago. I warned them to hold their breath when they took a drink. My uncle didn't pay attention, and they thought he was going to have a heart attack!
