  1. […] Mojo 2011 […]

  2. okay i’ve looked at all three mojito wines and want to try one. in your opinion what’s the best one you’ve made so far?

    • Each one has it’s qualities.
      The first is light on flavor, the last and not bottled yet, was transitioned to more like a Margarita- rather than a mojo… I have high hopes for this- but want to get back to the mojo roots- next time.

      • the wife is a huge fan of mojito so i’ll definitely give it a try. i’ve currently got candy cane, amoscato kit, and 5 gallons of skittle wine going, but this is next on my list.
