This year, Charleston Wine & Food celebrates the 10th anniversary of the week-long festival. Local mixologists were challenged to create a custom cocktail to mark the occasion. The four competition finalists showcased their creations during the Art in A Glass: Cocktails & Canvas event at Republic Reign. Local artist and Charlestonian, Jonathan Green created the signature artwork for the festival this year and guest were treated to a limited edition print copy of the artwork.
The contest winner: Jeremiah Schenzel of Cocktail Club Charleston on King Street. He created a refreshing cocktail that included frozen cucumber balls and Lillet wine granita (it’s kinda like gelato but icier, yummy) called “My Two Pearls” after his daughters.
This year’s Charleston Wine & Food Festival is shaping up to be one for the books. Find more about the festival at www.charlestonwineandfood.com
