Last week, Hospitality Department Head Patricia Agnew challanged CIC students to create a cocktail for the Post & Courier's booth at the upcoming BB&T Charleston Food + Wine Festival. They rose to the occasion, coming up with a tasty and refreshing "Pomegranate Persuasion." Here's the announcement from the newspaper Friday Moxie section and the recipe.
