   2 1/2 c  Vodka

   Look for firm, heavy oranges which indicates lots of juice, and
   smooth-skinned ones free from soft spots and mold.
   Wash and peel oranges making sure to scrape ALL white rind from the peels
   to avoid bitter flavor. Add to liquor and vanilla bean. Steep 2-3 weeks,
   strain and filter. Add sugar syrup and let age for 4 weeks.
   The entire orange may also be used. Cut oranges into wedges and follow
   instructions. Gives opportunity to use tangerines, tangelos, or manderin
   oranges. Cognac or brandy may be used as the base liquor and additional
   spices or extracts can be added.
