The coziest coffee drink! This lavender latte is made with espresso, your milk of choice, and sweetened with a quick and easy-to-make lavender simple syrup.

For the latte:

  • 12 shots espresso (or 4 ounces strong coffee)
  • 6 ounces milk or non-dairy milk alternative

For the lavender syrup:

  1. In a small saucepan, bring water to a simmer over medium-low heat. Add sugar and lavender and stir until sugar is fully dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature (about 25-30 minutes). Using a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth, strain syrup, discarding lavender buds. Store syrup in the refrigerator for up to three weeks.

  3. Steam the milk using an espresso machine or heat the milk then froth it using a milk frother or whisk.
  4. Pour the milk into the espresso ending with a little foam.
  5. Optional: garnish with extra lavender buds.
