Combine 1 cup water and 18 whole cloves in a small pot. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Add 1 darjeeling tea bag and steep for about 5 minutes. Return to heat and add 1 cup sugar and 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon. Heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and add 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract.

Combine Heavy Water Vodka and fresh pomegranate syrup on ice in a shaker. Shake thoroughly. Strain into a Champagne flute. Slowly pour Champagne to fill the flute. Garnish with three pomegranate seeds.
Combine equal parts sugar and water in a sauce pan. Two cups of each should do it. Peel a pomegranate or two. Break the seeds apart and add them to the sugar and water. Simmer over low heat for 30 to 45 minutes until the color of the liquid is as red as the formerly red seeds are white. Let the mixture cool before you strain it.
An hour or two before cocktail time, pour a bottle of Heavy Water Vodka into a large pitcher. Add cucumber and lemon slices. If itâ€™s going to be a chilly night, add an inch of fresh ginger cut into thin slices. When ready, fill a shaker with ice. Pour in Heavy Chill and shake for 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass or in a rocks glass filled with ice. Garnish with a cucumber slice.
Put a cocktail glass in the freezer or fill with ice and water until frosty cold. Pour single malt scotch into a shaker, swirl, and pour out excess. Fill the shaker with ice. Add Heavy Water Vodka. Shake until icy cold. Pour into frosted glass. Garnish with a flamed lemon twist.
Before you drop a lemon or orange twist in a cocktail as a garnish, take an extremely fresh twist and hold it about 2 to 3 inches above the glass. Light a match. Then crisply and quickly twist the twist across the flame toward the drink. If done correctly, there will be a brief but spectacular â€œpoofâ€ of flame and a little smoke. Immediately drop the twist into the cocktail. This adds a very subtle yet distinctive smoky aroma to the drink.
Put martini glass in the freezer or fill with ice and water until frosty cold. Pour vermouth into a shaker, swirl, and pour out excess. Fill the shaker with ice. Add Heavy Water Vodka. Shake until icy cold. Pour into frosted glass. Garnish with an olive or a flamed lemon twist.
Always use the finest ingredients. Old vermouth (a bottle thatâ€™s open more than 2 weeks and unrefrigerated) and poor quality vodka make a bad martini.
Use the freshest ice. Never use old ice to make a cocktail, it distorts the flavor.
Shaking v. stirring: You canâ€™t bruise a martini by shaking it. You can only bruise a Bloody Mary. Tomato juice is thixotropic, it becomes more fluid when it is shaken. Shaking adds essential dilution and oxidation into the drink, blending the flavors. Stirring keeps a drink clear and cold, and makes the alcohol less pronounced.
There are no carbohydrates in a martini. And it is low in calories (132 calories).
