What You'll Need
2 cups water
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup rum
1/2 cup V8® Mint & Lime Vegetable Juice
3/4 cup club soda
1 cup ice
To make the simple syrup, heat the water and sugar in a 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 3 minutes. Reserve 2 tablespoons simple syrup and save the remainder for another use.
Stir the rum, vegetable juice, club soda and reserved simple syrup in a small pitcher.
Fill 2 glasses with the ice. Divide the mixture between the glasses.
