8 cups water
1 cup sugar
Zest from 2-3 oranges
1 split vanilla bean
Juice from one lemon, freshly squeezed
1/8 tsp. champagne yeast

Directions:
Bring 2 cups of water to a boil, remove from heat, and stir in the sugar to dissolve.

Add the orange zest and vanilla bean and let stand until cool.

Go ahead and proof your yeast in one cup of water. (To proof your yeast. fill a cup or mug with some water, and heat it to about 100 degrees (not too hot or you’ll kill the yeast).

When the mixture has cooled, add the yeast/water mixture and stir.

Remove the vanilla bean.

If you're using a 2-liter bottle, pour the entire mixture in. If you're using the swing-top bottles, evenly divide the mixture between two bottles. Either way, you can then top off the bottle(s) with water, leaving about an inch of room at the top.
