Legends Lemon Drop Martini

Lemon Drop Martini
Juice of 3 lemons (about 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice)
2 tablespoons super fine sugar (plus about 1/4 cup to sugar-rim the martini glass)
2 fresh mint leaves
2 shots vodka
Ice in shaker
1 lemon wedge (to sugar-rim the martini glass)

Pour about 1/4 cup super fine sugar onto a saucer slightly larger than your martini glass rim.  Prepare your glasses by rubbing the rim of your glass with your lemon wedge. 

Place rim of glass in sugar and spin slowly to coat the rim.

Mix lemon juice, sugar and vodka in a martini shaker filled with ice. Shake well and pour into sugar-rimmed martini glass. Garnish with mint.

NOTE:  You can make your own super fine sugar by running granulated sugar in the food processor.
