Honey Whiskey Sour

This weeks weekend remedy is a simple whiskey sour spruced up with fresh oranges and honey. Sometimes it's nice to make a cocktail that's not too complicated yet you still don't feel short changed in the flavor department. This one has been my go to for awhile, plus it's so pretty to look at.  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!
