Friends, we are beaming! It has just been announced that our Lucky Lime & Sea Salt Clover Honey is the Second Runner Up in the Food Category in the First Annual Texas Works Awards Presented by Go Texan. We'd like to thank the Food Category judge, Jess Pryles, for taking notice of our honey.
Chet Garner and Vincent Friedewald created such a wonderful program in Texas Works. They’re shining a light on so many talented Texas entrepreneurs and we feel so lucky to have been in very, very good company for this competition.
Thank you, Texas Works!
'Tis the season! Warm yourself up with this smooth and tasty beverage. The ancient Aztec's created Xocoatl, a unique drink somewhat like a spiced hot chocolate. Try this similar medley using our Fiery Sweet Mesquite honey.
Spicy Bourbon Hot Cocoa
1 cup almond milk
2 tablespoons Fiery Sweet Mesquite honey
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon of your favorite bourbon (optional)
1 pinch kosher salt
Slowly whisk honey, cocoa powder, and salt in a one-half quart or one quart saucepan over medium heat. Bring it to a low simmer and slowly whisk in the almond milk. Cook, while stirring, until slightly thickened and beginning to bubble at edges. Slowly stir in bourbon. Pour into mug for serving.
For those who enjoy more spice, add 3 tablespoons of Fiery Sweet Mesquite honey instead of 2 tablespoons.
