  • 8 oz coffee strong
  • ¼ cup almond milk substitute soy milk also
  • 2 tsp simple syrup lavender infused

Recipe Notes

To make the lavender infused simple syrup:

  1. You will need 1 cup of sugar, 3/4 cup water and 2 Tbsp of food grade dried lavender flowers. Add the lavender flowers to a sauce pan with the water.
  2. Bring the water to a boil then lower to a simmer for 5 minutes. Stir the flowers occasionally while simmering. After 5 minutes turn off the heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes. The water should be just warm to the touch. Add the sugar while warm.
  3. Stir to combine the sugar until it is fully dissolved. You can turn on the flame on low briefly to add a little heat to help dissolve. You don't want to simmer at this point or the sugar may crystalize later.
  4. Pour the syrup through a strainer to separate the flowers.  Store the syrup in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
