Bourbon Hot Honey

Bourbon hot honey is my new favorite thing to drizzle over biscuits, cheese, pizza, fried chicken, and iced tea!

Servings 24 servings


  • 12 oz honey
  • 3 chiles, roughly chopped (Fresnos, serranos, jalapenos, etc.)
  • 2 tbsp bourbon


  • In a small saucepan, stir together the honey and chiles. Set over medium heat until it comes to a light boil.
  • Reduce the heat to low and let it gently simmer for at least 45 minutes and up to 1 hour, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
  • Remove from heat, and strain into a jar, discarding the leftover chiles. Stir the bourbon into the honey. Let it cool before sealing. Store it in the fridge up to 3 months.


I use Fresno peppers but serranos or jalapenos would work great too.
