- 2 (750-ml) bottles dry white wine
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup orange liqueur such as Grand Marnier
- 1/4 cup Pernod

Bring all ingredients except oranges to a boil (reserve wine bottles and corks), stirring until sugar has dissolved.
Remove zest from oranges in a continuous spiral using a vegetable peeler and cut off any white pith with a paring knife. Reserve oranges for another use and divide zest between empty wine bottles.
Fill bottles with orange wine and cool, uncorked, 1 hour.
Cork bottles, then chill at least 4 hours.
