Total Time: 10 Minutes

Serves: 2 people

Prep Time: 10 Minutes


  • 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


  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.

  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.



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