    Once you have selected the glasses, line them up in a row on a flat and cleared surface, and equally divide the brown sugar among them. Then, proceed to add four fresh mint leaves to each glass. Now add a piece of lime to each glass, and gently pound the mixture with the help of a small, light-weight  pestle, until the limes are properly crushed, and everything in the glass is fully amalgamated.

    Now that the mixture in each glass is ready, proceed to pour vodka into all the glasses, leaving about three inches of space at the top. Use a stirring rod to swirl the drink about in each glass, in order to mix all the ingredients together.
