To prepare the gelatin: in a medium saucepan stir together gelatin and sugar. Add 1 cup of the juice or ginger ale. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes or until gelatin dissolves. Remove from heat. Slowly stir in remaining juice or ginger ale and lemon juice (pour ginger ale slowly so it doesn't fizz).
Spoon blackberries into a 2-quart glass bowl or straight-sided container. Add half the gelatin mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours or until set. After one hour of chilling, in a medium bowl stir together strawberries and remaining gelatin-juice mixture. Cover and chill 1 hour or just until partially set (consistency of unbeaten egg whites). Spoon strawberry mixture on set blueberry mixture. Cover and refrigerate 3 to 4 hours or until set. Serve with Sweetened Whipped Cream.
To prepare the Sweetened Whipped Cream: in a chilled medium bowl combine 1/2 cup whipping cream, 1 tablespoon powdered sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla. Beat with the chilled beaters of an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form (tips curl over).
