Sweet & Smoky Honey Drizzle for Cheese

This 2 minutes-to-prep honey drizzle, featuring Winemaker’s Pantry Pinot Spice Pairing, takes your favorite hard or semi-soft cheeses over the top in flavor!

Try it as part of a Napa Style Charcuterie & Cheese Platter when entertaining or, just enjoy it all on its own with a few crackers and a nice glass of Russian River(CA) or Willamette Valley (OR) Pinot. You won’t want your cheese any other way after!

TasteMaker’s Note: We used an incredible Northwestern Fireweed Honey from our good friends at Moon Shine Trading Co., available at zspecialtyfood.com … superior honey products well worth ordering online or, you can substitute with a light amber honey like Clover or Wildflower from your local grocer.



  • 1/4 cup Fireweed, Clover or Wildflower Honey
  • 1/4 tsp Flaked Sea Salt
  • 2 tsp Winemaker’s Pantry™ Spice Pairing for Pinot Noir
  • Warm Water, 1 or 2 drops
  • Crackers or Bread
  • Your Favorite Hard or Semi-Soft Cheese (Manchego, Gouda, etc.)


In a small serving dish, stir together the honey, sea salt, and spice blend, adding just one or two drops of warm tap water to help loosen the mixture.

Drizzle over a large wedge of cheese or slices/chunks of cheese (or, just let your guests spoon on as much on each bite as they want!)

Serve with crackers or bread.
