1. Wash an orange and remove the zest. Remove the wedges from all 3 oranges. Set aside.
2. Split the vanilla bean in two lengthwise. Scrape out the seeds using the end of a knife and place them in a pot. Add the orange juice and all the ingredients with the exception of the wedges and mint.
3. Bring to a boil on medium heat and remove from the heat after it first boils. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes, the time to brew and cool down. Strain into a pitcher.
4. Divide the wedges among 4 tall glasses and pour in the warm juice. Garnish with mint, if desired.
