BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Mar 17, 2015) -  Rum tours, beer brewing, wine tasting, Scotch sipping. There's no end of great ways to add a grown-up twist to travel. In some places, the tastings are true attractions in their own right. And, with spring just a few days away, now's the time to start thinking of where you're going to let loose on your next vacation. The travel experts at Cheapflights.com, the online leader in finding and publishing travel deals, are here to offer some libation vacation inspiration with their Top 10 Booze-Infused Getaways. After all, you don't have to be a student to want a Spring Break.

A pint of beer, a glass of wine, a cocktail on the rocks (or the beach) -- whatever your drink of choice, these first five destinations to make our booze-infused destinations list will definitely quench your thirst in more ways than you can imagine. Don't drink alcohol? No worries -- there's even something here for you.

  • Bridgetown, Barbados - If your idea of a vacation is sitting on a beach with a daiquiri in hand, then Barbados is the place for you. The island country known for its tropical climate is home to Mount Gay Rum, the world's oldest rum brand. Those who want to learn more about the liquor can take a $10 tasting tour, which includes award-winning rums, such as the Black Barrel and Silver Rum, with notes of banana and sugarcane. For the full experience, opt for the Bajan buffet lunch where you can dine on local dishes and rum-infused desserts while overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The lunch is topped off with a glass of handmade Mount Gay Rum Punch, which will let your mind sail away into paradise.
  • Speyside, Scotland - Do you love scotch as much as Ron Burgundy? Then head to Speyside, Scotland, where you can get your fix of the malt whisky. Speyside is home to more than 50 distilleries and produces the two best-selling single malt whiskies in the world: The Glenlivet and Glendfiddich. Every May the region of North East Scotland hosts the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival, a five-day event that includes tastings, whisky classes, concerts and more. The festival attracts Scotch enthusiasts from more than 31 different countries. In addition to liquor, the region also boasts historic castles and a 50-mile coastal trail that allow visitors to become intoxicated by the picturesque scenery.
  • Walt Disney World Epcot Center, Orlando, Florida, United States - If you've ever wanted to travel around the world tasting the spirits of each region, you may want to start by booking a flight to Orlando. Walt Disney World has become a huge attraction for adults traveling both with and without children. A popular activity for the 21+ crowd is sampling the liquors and cuisines at Epcot's 11 countries, commonly known as "Drinking around the World." Some highlights include sipping on reds and whites in Italy's Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar, cooling off with a specialty Margarita at Mexico's La Cava del Tequila and quenching your thirst with a brew at Germany's Biergarten. Just make sure to pace yourself and pair your beverages with plenty of snacks (like cured meats and cheese in Italy, fish and chips in the United Kingdom and tasty pot stickers in China). Bon appétit!
  • Dublin, Ireland - Beer lovers rejoice! In addition to boasting historic castles, botanical gardens and quaint scenery, Dublin is also home to the famed Irish stout. In fact, the Guinness Storehouse has been named Ireland's top attraction for three consecutive years in a row, making the capital city a must-see spot for beer drinkers across the globe. The seven-story building, in the shape of a pint-glass, schools visitors on everything from how Guinness is made to ancient beer barrel making. Plus, at the end of your tour you can sit back and relax with a pint of brew while taking in the 360-degree view of Dublin atop of the locale's Gravity Bar.
  • Cabo San Lucas, Mexico - Even non-drinkers can enjoy decadent spa treatment at the Spa at Esperanza in Cabo San Lucas. For those who want to skip the tequila shots in favor of a day (or week) of relaxation, make this innovative oasis your go-to. Choose between intoxicating therapies like the Margarita Medley -- also known as the "Spagarita" -- which includes a foot soak, neck massage, lime facial and body wrap. Men can indulge in the masculine Mexican Beer & Lime Facial, offering a full facial, exfoliation and a mask made with actual Corona beer to firm skin and minimize pores. Who says you can't have your cocktail and drink it, too?
