Spice up your life: 5 client-inspired hot honey recipes

October 11, 2023

We need to talk about food and beverage clients. We love working on the accounts – coming up with product names, writing emails, keeping the store graphics looking on point. But there’s a problem. 

You’re making us hungry. 

The latest collaboration with Mike’s Hot Honey has not helped. In fact, we can’t get Hot Honey off the brain. We’re writing about it. We’re thinking about it. We’re dreaming all things bee-licious.

So, we’ve done what all good marketers do… channeled it into some useful content! 

From moreish appetizers to cocktails with a kick that slide down way too easy, here’s our team’s top five hot-honey recipes

If you need us, we’ll be in the kitchen. Or at our local RFP eating the new ‘Grand Slam’ Pizza drizzled with Mike’s Hot Honey. Or at Fresh Market. Buying *more* Mike’s Hot Honey. 

1 Hot Honey Blackberry Margarita

As summer winds down and we head into that Fall bridge season, this is the cocktail to take you from poolside to fireside. Tequila and cointreau team up with hot honey and berries for a fruity cocktail with a kick that just screams happy hour.

2 Slow roasted Hot Honey Tomato Crostini

An appetizer that combines crispy, creamy, mellow, and spicy – count us in. These roast tomato and  ricotta-topped crostini are drizzled with hot honey for an picture-perfect appetizer that has opening Instagram before they’re even off the baking sheet. 

3 Buttermilk Biscuits 

Even biscuits aren’t left out of the hot honey craze. Created by the Mike’s Hot Honey team, you know these Buttermilk biscuits are going to be good. It’s as simple as drizzling your hot-from-the-oven biscuits with honey for the perfect thanksgiving side. 

4 Crockpot Bourbon chicken 

This hot-honey bourbon chicken remix is one of those brilliant recipes that tastes like you spend hours in the kitchen, but is surprisingly low effort. Let the crockpot know summer break is over and have this warming chicken dish ready and waiting to serve up when you get home. 

5 Hot Honey Mustard

Proving that this versatile condiment deserves its spot in your kitchen, this hot honey mustard is perfect for spicing up sandwiches, giving a little flavor kick to sliders for game day, or even to have on the table as a dipping sauce. 

If you are a food or beverage brand or chain looking to level-up your marketing activity, we’d love to add you to the list of clients that make us hungry!
