Hawaiian born Mehana Pilago's resume and accolades were piling up long before she graduated from high school. As a junior she received early acceptance to the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in San Francisco after she successfully launched her swimwear line  Khushti Kini. Having lived in a bikini since birth, her line is inspired by the tropical environment of the islands and her cosmic connection with the ocean; Mehana created her swimwear label with the mission to empower women of all shapes and sizes. Today she's sharing her recipe for a spicy cayenne pepper margarita, best enjoyed by the ocean, in a bathing suit with friends of course!
