Curiosity

Mojo is a voodoo term meaning magic. I chose this name to create a word game between mojo and mojito. This cocktail is a mojito with the addition of sparkling wine.
A little tip: mint must not be pounded in order not to extract the oil which is heavier to digest.

 

Recommended Wine: Metodo Classico Extra Brut
