We love spa treatments and we like to tipple. Now, combine the two? That’s spa-licious indeed. Here are some of America’s best spa treatments that are booze-inspired or cocktail paired:
Blackberry Farm,Walland, Tennessee
Lavender and Vanilla Bourbon Body Drench
This sumptuous full-body massage combines nutrient-rich lavender essential oil with aromatic vanilla bourbon body butter. The butter melts as it is massaged into the skin to deeply nourish, while a heated wrap enhances intense hydration to smooth and soften the body.
Calistoga Ranch, Napa Valley, CA
Ale Immersion Bath
A bath infused with two different types of organic malt: a dry ale yeast and fresh hops. This spa tradition, practiced in Europe for hundreds of years, extracts B Vitamins from brewery yeast and soothes skin and pores, supports joint pain with increased blood circulation, reduces stress and relaxes muscles.
Four Seasons Resort, Vail, Colorado
Scrubs & Cocktail Series
Using fresh herbs sourced directly from the executive chef’s garden, guests will enjoy homemade scrubs and perfectly paired cocktails. This new series of treatments kicks off this summer and each month will feature a new ingredient used to create the scrub & complementary cocktail. Example scrub and drink pairings include: Spearmint Scrub and a Mojito; Chocolate Mint Scrub and Chocolate Mint and Tarragon Smash made with Four Seasons Vail Eagle Rare Bourbon; and Rosemary Scrub and a Rosemary and Heirloom Tomato Tonic with The Botanist Gin.
Calm Waters Spa, Hawks Cay Resort, Florida Keys
Key Lime Mojito Signature Scrub

The experience concludes with a decadent warm moisture wrap, leaving the skin soft and hydrated. The Key Lime Mojito Signature Scrub uses the resort’s own private label Key Lime products.
Hiatus Spa + Retreat, Austin, Texas
Cocktail & Care Combo
Each month, Hiatus shakes up a new cocktail-paired treatment for the “Monthly Retreat” series.

The Vichy’s rain and a dash of Aveda’s Calming Body Composition complete the cure, followed by a sparkling Cava + St. Germaine cocktail.
The Allison Inn & Spa, Newberg, Oregon

Coeur d’Alene Casino & Resort, CDA, Idaho
With a menu you’d more likely find at a beachside cocktail bar rather than a spa, here’s a few of their mixology beauty treatments:
Lemon Drop Pedicure – Using LaLicious Lemon Blossom scrub to exfoliate, it smells so good, so may be tempted to drink it. The pedicure leaves your feet soft and fancy free with creamy lemon butter lotion.
Watermelon Basil Vodkatini – Skin is enveloped in antioxidants with a Sparkling Citrus-Cilantro soak. Next, you are polished to perfections with a fresh Watermelon-Basil Sugar Scrub infused with Square One Organic Vodka. Relax with a juicy, vitamin-rich whipped Shea butter massage swirled with live Strawberry fruit cells.
Champagne Breeze – After a dip in a minty-champagne Shea butter soak, a whipped citrus-infused Shea Sugar Scrub gently polishes you to perfection. Next, a warm, rich honey and papaya fruit serum wrap seals in hydration followed by a Ginger Sorbet scented body milk massage.
Rum Punch – Soak in an antioxidant rich Clementine sparking soak before a Butter Rum brown Sugar Scrub sends you to smooth operator status. Relax as a warm Honey glaze serum is painted on and finish with a shea butter massage with delicious sangria notes of mango, melon, peach and strawberry.
