Vodka Mint Martini

This is a very fresh tasting martini and is a tad bit on the sweet side, but it is delicious and would be a great summer cocktail.

2 oz vodka
dash of vermouth
1 1/2 tbl sugar
juice of 1 lime or 1 small lemon
about 6 or 7 big leafs of fresh mint

Muddle ice, sugar, citrus juice, and mint.  Add vodka and vermouth.  Shake vigorously to combine ingredients and strain into your martini glass.  It is ok if some of the mint leafs fall into the cup, it just adds more freshness and adds the light green tint.
