  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 3 tbsp. honey
  • tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. tbsp. bourbon or brandy
  • pinch salt
  • 6 oz. Rogue River Blue cut into 4 wedges


  • 1. Strip the leaves from the bottom 5” of rosemary sprigs. Cut the tip of each at a 45 degree angle, forming a point. Soak rosemary skewers in a shallow dish of water. Set aside.
