(WVUE) -

Time to say Salud!! Sunday is National Margarita Day.

Whether you like it with salt or no salt, or frozen or on the rocks, Sunday is the day to indulge with one of the world's most popular alcoholic drinks.

The classic margarita is a concoction of tequila, triple sec and lime.

The interesting thing about this beloved drink is that historians have had a hard time pinning down who created it. Over the years, dozens of people have claimed they invented the margarita. What is known, is the drink dates as far back as the 1930s when bartenders were serving it up to patrons.

The margarita has evolved with bartenders across the U.S. using many different flavors such as strawberry or mango.

One of the largest wine and spirits business, Brown-Forman, says its one of America's most popular drink; so expect to see many enjoying a margarita this weekend.
