 The Ear

The inner ear is responsible for balance and directly poisoned by alcohol. In moderate doses this just results in unsteadiness but high doses can result in the balance mechanism sending faulty messages to the rest of the brain.

The net result is something called the spins - a feeling that your surroundings are moving and is often associated with the urge to vomit.
