    Crate & Barrel sells 1 liter sized bottles for $4 that work well for this. They also sell two smaller sizes (10oz and 16oz are my recollections). Here's the bigger sized one:

    We used to buy the bigger ones. Instead, we either recycle screw cap or cork wine/spirits bottles. Or get the Rieme sparkling grapefruit lemonade (or other flavors) at Capone's foods -- these bottles are 750 mL with the same tops as the Crate & Barrel ones for about $4 but you also get a tasty beverage.

        I got great glass bottles for homemade vanilla extract at http://www.specialtybottle.com/
        The bottles are cheap, but shipping will kill you.

            Sounds like you probably found some by now, but the Container Store carries a lot of hermetic clamp bottles, too. They have a store in Natick and one in Chestnut Hill.

              We get ours at Beer Wine Hobby in Woburn. http://www.beer-wine.com/ They carry a variety of shapes and sizes, not just standard beer and wine bottles. Look over the online catalog, then call to see if they have what you'd like in stock before driving over there.
