Shake It Up at Squaw Creek's Summer Cocktail Hour,

We all know the feeling, a refreshing splash of fizz hitting your tongue after you just hiked 5 miles in the sun, and the comforting sip of whiskey as you sit on the deck, remembering your day. Whatever your libation, and whatever your salvation, a Tahoe day is full of adventure and you've earned your cocktail prize by the end of it.

Resort at Squaw Creek's Summer Mixology Cocktail Series provides guests with a fun Tahoe experience. We're serving both new and classic cocktails that use fresh herbs grown right here in the beautiful Lake Tahoe sunshine.

All you have to do is arrive at happy hour time and our renowned mixologist will teach you how to muddle, crush, and infuse different kinds of flavors and spirits...and then shake things up and have you try it too. Remember this: the best way to learn to make a cocktail is to taste test.

So "taste test" away and join us for a unique cocktail crafting and culinary treat at Six Peaks Grille, the resort's fine dining restaurant, on Saturday, August 13, 2016 from 5 pm - 6 pm. Small plates will be served throughout the event, you can enjoy dinner in the restaurant after.

Resort at Squaw Creek Builds a Rooftop, Organic, Hydroponic Garden

Resort at Squaw Creek has taken "fresh" to the next level and completed the construction of its new, hydroponic, rooftop garden and is sourcing herbs and produce from the garden to include in the fare of all resort dining.


Squaw Creek has always sought sustainably-farmed, fresh produce from local vendors, but is now taking the supply chain from miles to feet for its vegetables and herbs. Rooftop Roots, the name of the new garden, is the first of its kind in Lake Tahoe – in fact no other resort is doing it. Planted on the roof above the resort’s coffee shop and café, Sweet Potatoes Deli, Rooftop Roots is producing a variety of vegetable like onions, radishes, and micro-greens as well as herbs like rosemary, basil and mint. The produce from Rooftop Roots is going straight into menu selections for Six Peaks Grille, Sandy’s Pub, Cascades, Sweet Potatoes, and group and corporate meetings at the hotel this summer.

The garden is 1,500 squaw feet and hydroponic gardens produce A LOT of produce. So much produce, that Resort at Squaw Creek is partnering with Tahoe Food Hub to sell the surplus to the organization. Tahoe Food Hub is a non-profit organization that is working to restore local food distribution by building a regional food system for North Lake Tahoe. They’ve created a network of farms within 100 miles of North Lake Tahoe / Truckee and they have connected the farms with restaurants, small grocers, schools, and hospitals.

As resort Executive Chef Tim Hmay says, “I want to use Mother Nature to make my food great. I don’t want to use product.” For Chef, this means simple, organic, sustainable and seasonal recipes and plenty of Tahoe sunshine.

Resort guests and locals can check out the new garden, starting this July, with the onset of Resort at Squaw Creek’s Summer Mixology Series. A causal, hour-long event, the Mixology “class” is a collaboration between our Chef and Mixologist as they harvest and create fare right in front of event-goers. Guests will enjoy three cocktails crafted with herbs from the garden and share small plates as they learn how to make each drink. Classes start on July 30 and run through August 13 and September 3, from 5 – 6 pm. For more information on these events, check out the resort’s event calendar.
