Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Slice the baguettes in 1/4 inch rounds, brush lightly with olive oil, and place on a baking sheet. Toast the bread in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden. Turn pan during baking or flip slices over if needed. Allow to cool.
Add ricotta, 1 TBSP honey and 2 teaspoons lemon juice to a small bowl and stir to combine.
Spread each crostini with some of the ricotta mixture, then top with berries and place on a serving platter. Repeat until all the crostini have cheese and berries, then scatter lemon zest and basil over the crostini, then drizzle with honey. Add a bit of freshly ground black pepper if desired.
Serve immediately with a glass of California rose.
