(WTVO/CNN) — It may be only Wednesday morning but it’s 5 o’clock somewhere!

That’s because Wednesday is National Tequila Day!

The spirit is traditionally used in margaritas, as well as plenty of other cocktails.

Tequila comes from a succulent called the blue agave, which grows in Mexico’s jalisco state.

Mexican law says the drink must come from jalisco to legally be labeled tequila.

According to USA TodayChili’s, Margaritas Mexican Restaurants, and On the Border are all offering tequila drink deals to celebrate.
