If year-round sunshine, epic waves, and surfer chicks aren't enough to lure you to Maui, the island's solar-powered, organic vodka distillery might do it. Check out Ocean Vodka, an 8-year-old company that recently opened a visitor-friendly complex. Aloha, lushes!
Being healthy and getting drunk are no longer mutually exclusive. Ocean Vodka's the only one of its kind, distilled from organic sugar cane and farmed on the rich, volcanic soil surrounding the distillery. The water's also super pure, sourced from the Big Island.
Who knew vodka paired so well with cheese? In paradise, anything goes.
