In a blender combine rum, Simple Syrup, lime juice, and kale. Add ice cubes; cover and blend until smooth.
In a small saucepan combine sugar and water. Bring to boiling over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. (The syrup is done when it is completely clear and the surface is covered with bubbles.) Remove from heat; cool. Store, covered, in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
