Combine the lemon slices and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Muddle well with a muddler (or the end a wooden spoon).
Fill the cocktail shaker halfway full with ice cubes. Add the rum and shake well.
Add a few ice cubes to each of 4 wine glasses or goblets. Strain over ice.
Top off each glass with 2 ounces of red wine. Stir briefly, but seriously. Garnish with the lemon slices and serve.
NOTE: Lemon wheels are achieved by cutting slices and then slicing up to the the center of the slice. Fit the cut end onto top rim of glass as a garnish
FOR THE SIMPLE SYRUP
Combine the water and sugar in a medium-size saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.
Lower the heat a bit, keeping the mixture at a low boil for 3-4 minutes.
Turn off the heat and let the syrup cook completely in the pan.
Store in a clean, airtight container in the refrigerator.
Remainder of simple syrup that is not used can be used for another recipe. Stores well in the refrigerator.
