AUSTIN (AP/KXAN) — An Austin bar and grill has a $30,000 suggestion for a Valentine’s Day present — a specialty margarita and a pair of dangling diamond earrings.

Iron Cactus, which has three locations in the Austin area, on Wednesday portrayed the beverage and hand-crafted jewelry as a creative and unforgettable way to celebrate with a loved one.

The nearly 4-carat earrings are part of what the eatery touts as a Vision for Valentine’s Day, which is Saturday.

It’s not all about the bling. The handmade margarita includes fresh-squeezed lime juice.

Iron Cactus says a portion of the proceeds will go to Cheyanna’s Champion’s for Children, a Texas nonprofit that helps families of children suffering from rare or undiagnosed medical conditions, should anyone purchase the special margarita.
