Summer Sloshie Season


Summer is here which means that “sloshies” will start to avalanche out the doors of local sloshie stops. A Sloshie, in case you have not been paying attention, is a high octane powered slushie, and seems to be the drink of choice here in Jackson Hole in the summer.

There really is nothing like a frozen boozy drink to melt away a hot summer day, so whether you are headed out on an adventure to the North, South, East or West there is a sloshie watering hole along the way. We have made a list of some of the spots to stop and grab one as you race out to the lakes, rivers, BBQ’s or any other shenanigans.

To the North

Dornans: They will be serving sloshies at the Chuck Wagon starting early June. With two rotating flavors on tap you can either drink on the premise or pack one in your cooler for later at the lake or river.

Creekside: One of, I think the best around, Creekside Markets serves “the Hound” all day everyday. The original fresh squeezed sloshie in town their Greyhound is made throughout the day with no mix just fresh squeezed grapefruits! In fact over Memorial Weekend this year they went through roughly 30 cases of grapefruits, they just might be the largest grapefruit account in Wyoming. Go in for the Hound or see what else they have on tap.

To the South

JH Market Place: With nine flavors now on tap this is one stop that is worth driving to. They will have rotating flavors that include Watermelon Lime and Sangria.

Hoback Market: They are known for their Coffee Mudslide, as they are the only ones in the valley to use coffee in a sloshie. But be sure to check out the 12 other flavors that they have on tap. With a total of 13 flavors you are sure to find your favorite, and be assured that it will always be there as they don’t rotate the flavors.

To the East (in Town)

Moe’s: They will have two flavors rotating constantly made with all organic mixes. Head in this weekend for the Frozen Moscow Mule or Spicy Pinapple Margarita.

Pearl Street Market: New to the sloshie game Pearl Street Market will be serving up two rotating flavors all summer long, starting with a refreshing Lemonade! Drink them in house with a snack, lunch or with their 2 for 1 dinner entrees throughout June.

The Liquor Store of Jackson Hole (TLSofJH): One of the original sloshie spots in town, and the only one that has a sealed closed cap, TLSofJH has five rotating flavors. They use all natural fruit puree or mix and only premium liquors. For sure check out the Frose or Twist and Shout (Raspberry puree, Mojito mix and Rum…Yum). Also do not miss out on the chance to win a free sloshie. They are giving away a sloshie a week for the next 14 weeks. For more details visit their website or stop in grab a sloshie and get details on how to win one the next week.

Cutty’s: Coming soon so keep your eyes open. Cutty’s will be serving up two flavors of sloshie for in-house or on-the-go adventurers.

To the West (Village and Village Road):

Elevated Grounds: An amazing local coffee shop but now can be called a sloshie stop on the Westbank. They have a sloshie daily that you get until it is gone. They use all natural mix and keep their sloshies fresh.

Bodega: They have two rotating flavors on tap year round, that change daily. Most of their sloshies are made with house infused fresh juices. Be sure to check the sloshie name wall as well, you never know when someone might gift you a sloshie at Bodega.

Get your sloshie stroll on this summer, but please always remember, no matter what the occasion or adventure always drink your sloshie responsibly and never in the car. Be sure to learn the local sloshie laws before you head out on the town, in the county or up in the parks.





About Author

From Park City, to Tahoe, to Jackson I found myself floating like a snowflake from one ski town to the next. But once I arrived in Jackson in 2006 I knew that this was home. Growing up ski racing and traveling the world, from a young age I learned to love all sorts of food and at least try everything once. I loved being in the kitchen with my mom and grandmother when I was home, and got my kitchen work ethic from them. Some of my favorite dishes I often refer to as “the kitchen sink”, everything from the fridge, no recipe, just winging it and throwing in what moves me. Now I spend most of my time chasing my husband and two little boys around the mountains we call home. We love digging in the dirt, cruising through the farmers markets and cooking outside. My house and kitchen are always open and often filled with laughter from family and friends.
