From The Desk Of The Primitives: Blackcurrant Mojito Made With Black Vodka

The Primitives have been invited to guest edit MAGNET this week, so we thought we’d spin right back through memory, as the line from the title track of our new album, Spin-O-Rama, goes (how’s that for a clever bit of crowbarring?), and revisit some music-related experiences from our childhood, youth and early days of the band. There’s also some other random stuff to do with the world of the Primitives. It’s been a pleasure putting all this together, as there wouldn’t normally be any reason to relay any of this stuff. So thanks MAGNET, we’re enjoying the delve.


Tracy: I sometimes have one of these at my favourite bar/restaurant Cera 23 in the Raval in Barcelona.
1 tbsp fresh blackcurrants
A few mint leaves
1 lime
1 tsp brown sugar
Black vodka
Soda & ice
Add lime wedges to glass along with brown sugar and blackcurrants and squeeze together with large spoon or such like. Put mint leaves on top. Add layer of ice and measure of vodka and mix in. Add more ice and about 25ml of soda. Garnish with sprig of mint.
