Sloshed

adjective;
To be very drunk, wasted.
 
This term is used to refer to a state of extreme inebriation. This word came into use through metaphoric change of the word slosh. It comes from the sloshing heard from within a stomach full of liquid. It is used exclusively in the past tense to refer following the pattern of synonyms such as ‘smashed,’ ‘wasted,’ and other words referring to a state of intoxication.
Etymology : Slosh is probably a blend of slush and slop in its M.E. sense of "muddy place." The verb meaning "to splash about in mud or wet" is from 1844. Meaning "to pour carelessly" is recorded from 1875. Sloshed "drunk" is recorded from c.1900.
