SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

You might want to celebrate your Friday with a little salt around the rim of your glass.  It's National Margarita Day.

At Santa Barbara's Casa Blanca Restaurant, the popular drink was flowing from the bar to the tables.

Bar Manager Dominick Conffaro said, "the most popular (Margarita) today is on the rocks."   He says customers like it with, "simple, light, easy ingredients such as fresh lime juice, orange juice, agave nectar, and tequila,"

Conffaro said local residents have an impressive knowledge of Tequila. "You get a lot of calls for exotics which is cool," said Conffaro.
