Recipe by Lou
these are delicious,and my grandchildren love making them. This is my version of another recipe. You may use diet V8, and light orange juice instead of regular.. try it also made with lemon juice in place of orange juice. Both are great!(If you prefer the alcoholic version.. add rum.. both light and dark..) But we prefer non alcoholic...You can find grenadine in the low carb version on the net.

We chose this as one of three drinks to serve at our "Mocktail Bar" at our corporate summer picnic. Because we were serving to a crowd, we mixed the V8 and orange juice ahead of time and skipped the shaker. We used 9 oz. glasses filling them just over 1/2 way with the mix, adding about 3/4 ounce of grenadine and topped with Sprite. The drink went over well with our employees! Very well liked!
- 1 (10 ounce) bottle V8 tropical blend
- 1 1⁄2 ounces orange juice
- 12 pieces ice
- 1 ounce grenadine
- carbonated lemon-lime beverage (I use citrus drop from krogers)
