How to make Superman Drink


  • 2 cups orange kool-aid powder
  • 1 cup grape juice (I used Welch’s Concord Grape Juice)
  • Large goldfish crackers as garnishes


Step 1:  Make sure to chill two cups of kool-aid powder with grape juice in the refrigerator overnight or for at least eight hours.

Step 2: This is especially important if you are using a clear drink like white grape juice because the drink will not look very pretty without coloring if it isn’t cold enough.

Step 3: Once the drink has been chilled and is ready, pour the drink into party cups or any glass that can fit a bunch of them. Make sure to serve the drink in a cup, so it doesn’t spill everywhere.

Step 4: Add 2-3 goldfish crackers to each drink for a garnish, depending on how many people you serve.
