Good hot sauces deliver much more than heat. They kick up flavor with intriguing complexity. Bushwick Kitchen gets it. Starting with a sticky spin on hot sauce in the form of spicy honey, their collection of handmade, heat-seeking elixirs has evolved to include hot pepper-spiked maple syrup and fan favorite sriracha that rivals the rooster. Although rooted in Brooklyn, these adventurous sauciers seek fresh ingredients from the Hudson Valley and Catskills, Queens and Hunts Point in the Bronx, the salty Atlantic waters in Amagansett, and even a cinnamon bark farm in Indonesia. All to make spicy honeys and sauces that are more haute than hot. Guess that’s why they call it the Bees Knees.
