This shoot by Amy Neunsinger
is for a winter party feature at OKL,
yet the whole vibe translates
simply for any season.




Vintage and mix-matched? Check.
Family style service? Yes, please.
House cocktail with Limoncello? Boom...
baby, you know I like to make my own!

Scroll on for the cocktail's recipe, and soak up
inspiration from Neunsinger, who started
her career at Martha Stewart Living.
