I love drinking orginia, but its expensive, so I decided to make my own.

I juiced a bag of tangerines, added corn syrup, sugar, and 3 tbls of Vanilla extract.

Added enough mineral water to make 2 1/2 gallons

Perfect. The vanilla gave it a "cream" flavor which was a pleasant surprise

Nice!

Any idea how much total juice you collected?

I would say right under 2 quarts. It nearly filled up half a gallon.

My kids are going nuts and drinking it all way before my force carbonation can even set in

Thanks for posting this. I made a great soda based on your recipe, but I wanted to use some ginger and less sugar. Here's what I did for 1 liter:

-boiled one liter of water with a couple inches of sliced ginger & 3 tbsp of sugar
-when it cooled, I added juice from 3 tangerines and one lemon

The result was great.

Pretty close,

The orangina label says it contains lemons, oranges, and mandarins, but this recipe only uses mandarins (and I used oranges in mine actually).

In hindsight, I would juice a bag of mandarins and a couple lemons, mix it into real orange juice (not that sunny d crap), and mix the orange juice with mineral water and sweeten to taste. After its carbonated I'm sure it will be a nearly exact to the original product.

Filtering out the pulp from the juice will prevent any settling
