Imperial Sugar began in 1843 in South Texas. On their 150th anniversary they shared some of their recipes and this is one of them.

4 cups Imperial Granulated Sugar
6 cups water
Juice of 6 oranges (2 cups)
Juice of 3 lemons (1/2 cup)
1 can (46-oz) unsweetened pineapple juice
10 medium bananas, crushed
4 quarts ginger ale, chilled

In a large kettle, combine Imperial Granulated Sugar and water; boil 3 minutes. Cool. Mix juices with crushed bananas; stir syrup into fruit juice mixture. Pour into 6 refrigerator trays or other freezer containers; freeze. At serving time set out at room temperature 5 to 10 minutes. Spoon into 8-ounce glasses, filling halfway. Add a little ginger ale and beat with spoon. Fill glass with ginger ale. Makes about 40 8-ounce glasses.
