  • 6  fresh mint or basil leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger root
  • 1 can (5.5 ounces) V8® 100% Vegetable Juice, chilled
  • 3 fluid ounces cucumber vodka (about 1/3 cup)
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sriracha hot chili sauce (you can add more if you like)
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 cup seltzer water, chilled


  • Tips

    • Try coating the rim of the glass with a combination of cayenne pepper and kosher salt!  Make it stick by rubbing the rims with a slice of cucumber first.
  • Step 1

    Divide the basil and ginger between 2 glasses. Using a muddler or the back end of a wooden spoon, muddle the basil and ginger (lightly crush them against the side of the glass to release the flavor).  Fill the glasses with ice.

  • Step 2

    Add the V8, vodka, lime juice, sriracha and celery salt to a cocktail shaker.  Cover and shake until combined.  Pour the V8 mixture into the glasses.  Top with the seltzer and serve immediately.
