    I made a lime version of Skeeter Pee (2/3 lemon juice and 1/3 lime) that I plan to use as a base for a mojito wine. Now I'm trying to decide how to backsweetening it in a manner that will bump up the lime flavor and also add that hint of mint. So far I've contemplated using limeade, a mojito cocktail mix and even lime and mint coffee syrups. My concern with all of these is that they are not clear options so they will cloud up my wine. Will they clear with the wine when I use SuperKleer or do I just accept that any of these will result in a "dirty" wine. I'll also thinking about using a mint infused rum and a lime rum because they are both clear already which would give me a fortified wine.

    Has anyone tried any of these or can offer opinion?

    Val, A few years ago we made a Mojito S P. It turned out pretty good. My note taking is terrible but I do remember adding mint and a rum flavoring. Still have a bottle or 2. Don’t remember any clearing problems with it. There was definite Mojito taste to it. Roy
