A Salty Buzz Cocktail

As the day's get shorter, and the nights cooler, it's time to say goodbye to fruity cocktails and frozen drinks. But since the leaves haven't quite begun to turn yet, there is still time to squeeze the last bit of fun out of summer - and this refreshing cocktail has the perfect amount of sweet and "sting" for the transition into fall.

A mixture of honey, whiskey, lemon and a salted rim this drink is simple to make - but still complex in flavor.
