Tupelo Honey and Sriracha Compound Butter

Tupelo Honey Sriracha

Add something special to your dish!

Sriracha has been having a moment lately, earning itself a spot in recipes alongside old mainstays like bacon, chocolate, and the like. On the other hand, Savannah Bee Company’s best-selling Tupelo honey has been a consistent favorite in many dishes for years. I decided to marry the two sensational ingredients into something equally as versatile and crowd-pleasing.

This quick and simple recipe for a quirky compound butter brightens up any dish to which it’s added, be it grilled shrimp, biscuits, or on top of a juicy steak. As the butter melts, the soft floral notes of Tupelo honey and the sweet spiciness of Sriracha add a little something special to any dish.

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons Savannah Bee Company Tupelo honey
  • 5-7 teaspoons Sriracha, or to taste
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Whisk ingredients together thoroughly.
  2. Roll mixture into a cylindrical shape in plastic wrap.
  3. Refrigerate until hard and cold.
  4. Slice as needed and always keep refrigerated or frozen.



  • Try adding fresh herbs like thyme, dill, rosemary, or even basil for added complexity and versatility!
  • Use as a base when caramelizing onions or garlic in a pan, or use to top an already prepared dish.
  • Experiment with other great Savannah Bee honey varieties.
