DC: Superman

Superman Cocktail
Show your support of our favorite resident Kryptonian with these alien, yet entirely delicious layered Jello shots! They look impressive, but are deceptively easy to make. Combine one cup of boiling water with a small package of blue jello. Whisk until well dissolved, around 2 minutes. Add Blue Curacao and vodka, stir to combine. Fill shot glasses half way with mixture, use playable plastic containers for easy consumption. Refrigerate until gelatin sets, approximately two hours. Once the blue layer has set, combine cherry jello with one cup boiling water, stir until well dissolved. Add triple sec and citrus vodka. Stir briefly to combine, then pour over blue jello. So long as the blue layer has already set, the colors will not combine. Refrigerate for two to four hours, until the jello is firm.

Blue layer:
3 oz blue raspberry jello
1 cup boiling water
4 oz Blue Curacao
2 oz vodka

Red layer:
3 oz cherry jello
1 cup boiling water
2 oz triple sec
4 oz citrus vodka

Make it a mocktail:
Want to celebrate Superman in a more kid-friendly way? Simply skip the vodka, add 3 oz of lime juice in place of Blue Curacao, and substitute 3 oz of cranberry juice for the triple sec. Layer jello in the same method, and enjoy these brightly colored dessert cups!

Approximately two dozen shots

You could add a thin stripe of Lemon Jello to the middle, spice it up with some vodka and Triple Sec, but that would boost the output to around 3 dozen shots per batch!

The better option might just be to garnish with something like a candied lemon peel: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/56693/candied-lemon-peel/
