Ooooo La La Lavender Latte! This unique pairing of flavors is one of the newest to the coffee scene and definitely deserves to be given a shot…or two, depending on how tired you are (see what I did there?)

It might not replace your current “go-to,” but it’s worth a try on a day you’re feeling extra fancy. The floral Lavender notes are subtle and calming and pair well with the warm milk and coffee!

This recipe is super simple but makes you feel like you’re sipping the most modern latte from the hip coffee bar down the street! So, get in the kitchen and get fancy!

Lavender Simple Syrup

  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup white sugar
ingredients

Instructions:

Add water and lavender to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool completely.

Boiled Lavender

Use a mesh strainer to separate the buds from the water.

In another saucepan combine the sugar with 2-3 tablespoons of the lavender water(just enough to wet the sugar). Bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer for 4 minutes. Whisk occasionally.

Lavender Syrup

Whisk the lavender water into the sugar mixture and store in the refrigerator!

Lavender Latte

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup milk (I used whole)
  • ⅔ cup Strong brewed coffee
  • 2 Tablespoons Lavender simple syrup (more or less to personal liking)

Instructions:

Brew coffee and pour into the desired mug. Add simple syrup and stir.

Milk FrothWarm your milk on the stove or in the microwave and then froth. I used a $5 Ikea milk frother but pouring the milk into any kind of blender and blending for 30 seconds will also froth the milk for you.

Pour milk over top of coffee and syrup mixture and sprinkle with dried lavender…And Voila la la la…
