Farewell Jimmy Kimmel! How to Make the Kimmelrita!

Now that Jimmy Kimmel fever is over and Austinites are recovering from his visit during SXSW. We wanted to share with you as a way to keep Jimmy Kimmel’s spirit (no pun intended) alive how to make the Kimmelrita. But first, we want to thank Jimmy Kimmel for the shout out on Jimmy Kimmel Live. It’s our honor to name a margarita after you highlighted by George Clooney’s Casamigos Tequila and Independence Brewing Co.’s Stash IPA, just because you love beer!

Since the Kimmelrita was only available while Jimmy Kimmel was in Austin, our guests have asked how to make the popular margarita at home. You can click the video below to learn how to make the unique margarita the way Jesse, our head bartender, makes it. He recommends having a few Kimmelritas while watching Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Remembering the Heroes of 9/11

It’s been 13 years today since the Twin Towers in New York City crumbled to the ground and forever changed our way of life. As we commemorate 9/11, we, at Iron Cactus, salute our own brave firefighters.

Last Sunday, we sponsored a team of firefighters, who honor their fallen brethren by climbing the equivalent of 110-stories at a building in downtown Austin. What is known as the Memorial Stair Climb for Texas Firewalkers, our team and the rest of the firefighters who participated, carried their full firefighting gear walking up 110-stories. They do this Memorial Stair Climb every year to honor the 343 brave heroes of the FDNY. Say thank you and hug a firefighter today. Never Forget!
