Iron Cactus Now Offers Tequila Shots Served Sofia Vergara Style

Iron Cactus Mexican Grill & Margarita Bar today announced that guests can now order tequila shots served Sofia Vergara style. At this year’s Golden Globe Awards, actress Sofia Vergara was photographed by her Modern Family co-star, Sarah Hyland, drinking tequila with five lime wedges placed on the rim of the glass. The photo was shared on Hyland’s official Instagram account at

“When we saw the photo of Sofia drinking tequila with five limes around the rim, we thought it was a fun, creative way to drink tequila. So we decided to offer our guests the opportunity to drink their tequila the way Sofia Vergara does,” said Gary Manley, General Partner at Iron Cactus.  “We give Sofia Vergara all the credit for what we believe will be a new trend in drinking tequila.”

Iron Cactus is one of the nation’s top tequila bars offering more than 100 different types of tequila from the most popular to the newer, handcrafted tequila brands.

Iron Cactus is the first in Austin, Texas, to launch its own tequila, exclusively made by Herradura Tequila, under Iron Cactus’ specifications. The Iron Cactus Double Barrel Reposado is available at all locations. It is also the first to offer tequila on tap at its downtown Austin location.

In January 2013, actor George Clooney and restaurateur, Rande Gerber, launched their own tequila, Casamigos, at the Iron Cactus in downtown Dallas.

Iron Cactus serves contemporary Mexican dishes and premium, award-winning handcrafted margaritas. The original restaurant opened on historic 6th Street in downtown Austin in 1996. Since then, Iron Cactus has grown to five locations including restaurants in downtown Dallas, San Antonio River Walk and two additional Austin-area locations in North Austin and Hill Country Galleria.
