Oprah Invented A Cocktail You'll Want To Drink All Summer

She calls it a "TangOrita," of course.

With tangerine trees flourishing in her California yard, Oprah once found herself with a bounty of tangerines and not enough recipes on hand to make the most of this lush fruit -- so she created her own. Always a fan of tequila, the media mogul concocted her own version of a tangerine margarita, creating a bright and refreshing drink you'll want to sip all summer.

Frozen TangOrita

Recipe by Oprah Winfrey


4 oz. tangerine juice, freshly squeezed

2 oz. tequila, Patron Silver

1/3 oz. (or "hint") or triple sec

3/4 to 1 c. ice

Mix of colored salt and sugar, for rim

Floating mint lead, for garnish

Tangerine wedge, for garnish


Combine tangerine juice, tequila, triple sec and ice in a blender. Blend on the highest setting until smooth, scraping down sides as needed.

Moisten the rim of a margarita glass with a tangerine wedge. Dip the rim into the salt and sugar mix, and twist to coat.

Pour the drink into the glasses, add a mint leaf and garnish with tangerine wedge (or slice).
