Vodka

First came microbreweries. Then upscale coffee shops. Now boutique distilleries are the latest craze to (finally) catch on in ski country. Idaho's

44° North

vodka ($29; rockymountainvodka.com) combines that state's famous spuds with its official fruit-the huckleberry. Colorado's

Vodka 14

($32; vodka14.com) is made at the same distillery as 44° North, but eschews berry in favor of organic rye and corn. And Freeport, Maine's

Cold River

vodka ($32; coldrivervodka.com)-headed by former U.S. Ski Team coach Bob Harkins-is made from locally grown tubers. Log on to skiingmag.com for our favorite recipes.
