Saturday Sips – What’s Karen Drinking

Festive Pomegranate Gin and Tonic

If you Karen Van Vlotenfollow my friend Karen Van Vloten on Instagram, you probably get thirsty! She’s got a great engagement rate as her feed is full of the cocktails she crafts; her’s is the party you want to get invited to. It’s been a holiday tradition for her and I to get together for a little lunch at her house this time of year, and I swear I will get my house in order soon so I can return the favour! Her house is holiday ready early and always quite festive, her cats add entertainment, she has to be careful they don’t eat the decor, as they are always up to some mischief. Last week we met up and chatted about her cocktails making an appearance over here on GLV from time to time and hence this new series “What’s Karen Drinking”. Scroll down for the first recipe, a fab Pomegranate Gin and Tonic.
