  • A handful of dried lavender (about ¼ cup)
  • ½ cup of fresh, clean water
  • ½ cup of pure white sugar


To begin, combine water and lavender in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Once it starts boiling, reduce the heat and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes. Afterward remove the saucepan from the heat and finally allow the mixture to cool completely.

Lavender Infusion

Next strain the mixture through a mesh strainer to separate the buds from the liquid. This process will result in lavender infused water.

Sugar Syrup with a Hint of Lavender

Once you've strained your water it's time to make a syrup. In another saucepan mix together sugar and 2-3 tablespoons of the water— enough to moisten the sugar.

To make this mixture, heat it until it starts boiling then lower the heat and let it simmer for 4 minutes. Remember to stir.

Lavender Simple Syrup

Lastly combine the remaining lavender water with the sugar mixture. Whisk well to create a syrup. Keep this syrup in the refrigerator to maintain its freshness. You'll end up with a syrup that adds a touch of sophistication to any of your baking or drinks.



  • ½ cup of your favorite milk (I went with whole milk for a rich taste)
  • ⅔ cup of robustly brewed coffee
  • Two generous tablespoons of Lavender simple syrup (feel free to adjust to your personal sweet spot)


Begin by brewing your coffee just as you like it and pouring it into your chosen mug. Now, it's time to sweeten things up! Add your lavender simple syrup into the mix, stirring it well to blend in the floral sweetness.

Next, it's time to warm your milk. You can do so using a stovetop or just pop it in the microwave if you prefer. Once your milk is nice and warm, froth it up to your heart's content. I used a super affordable milk frother from Ikea, but just about any blender would do the trick. Blend for around 30 seconds, and you should have lovely frothy milk.

The final step is pouring your frothy milk over your coffee and syrup blend. Top off your Lavender Latte with a sprinkle of dried lavender for that extra floral kick... And there you have it - your very own Luscious Lavender Brew! Enjoy!
