Whew, how is everyone recovering from their long weekend?  Those weekends throw me off, what about you?  The weather is warming up again, but the last week has been super rainy and grey here in Seattle.  That was what got me thinking about this lavender latte.  Actually, the idea was first put into my head by my friend Meg who commented on my Lavender Collins that she had been drinking lavender lattes lately.  I’ve been a big fan of making my own syrups for coffee for years, and have several recipes on the blog including Vanilla, Autumn Spice and Gingerbread, so of course I wanted to try this right away!  I already had the syrup on hand from the Lavender Collins so making this was a snap.  And how about that multitasking syrup, huh?  Lavender in the morning, lavender in the evening.

There is something about a rainy, grey day that makes sipping on this lavender latte extra cozy.  Bonus points if you can wear leggings and listen to a relaxing playlist.  And hey, guess what!?!  I have a playlist for you!  It has been awhile since I shared a playlist on the blog, right?  I have actually been making them every month for the last few months with the intention of sharing them, but so far haven’t gotten that far.  I’ve been thinking about doing a monthly recap post where I share some highlights of the month, the top recipes, maybe a few things around the web that I am currently into, and possibly a playlist.  Not sure if that is something you all would be into, but I might do it soon and see what you think.  In the meantime, please enjoy this playlist with a lavender latte, preferably while wearing leggings. (Scroll to the bottom of this post for the playlist!)

A few notes about this recipe:  I don’t have an espresso machine, so I use an inexpensive Bialetti Moka Pot.  It is a stovetop espresso maker and is one of my favorite ways to make coffee at home.  In order to make the foam for the latte, I do this easy trick:  Pour the milk or half and half into a mason jar, warm up in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Screw on the lid and shake it until foamy (not too long, you don’t want to turn it into butter!).  Be sure to screw the lid on tightly or you might have a milk explosion (it has happened to me).  That is it!  No need to have a crazy expensive espresso machine to enjoy this latte!

    This lavender syrup is amazing! I would love to make it in bulk. Just curious if you think I would need to double the amount of lavender used for stepping? I was going to double the water and sugar amount but just not sure if I would need to double the lavender amount as well. When I made it as is, I only got two cups of coffee out of it. Just curious if that’s what you get as well?
    Thanks for an amazing recipe!

    1. Hi Jennifer – I haven’t doubled this recipe but what I would do is increase the lavender by about one half. Give that a try and see how you like the strength. I worry that doubling it might make it TOO strong. It may depend on your preference as well. Feel free to play with it to find the perfect amount for yourself! I think the amount of syrup used per latte will depend on your personal preference as well. Some people like to use more, some like to use less. So glad you enjoy the recipe!

  2. Hey! Is it necessary to have a stovetop espresso maker? Can you just use a really strong cup of coffee?

    Also where would I find dried lavender for the syrup?

    Thanks! 🙂

    1. Hi Lisa – Yes, you can absolutely use strong coffee instead! I often just use my french press. As for the lavender, I have found it in the bulk spice section at some stores, also it is often sold in spice stores. You can also order it on Amazon, just search for culinary lavender.

  3. Hello!

    How long will the lavender syrup keep if refrigerated? Wondering if I could make a big batch 🙂


    1. Hi Taylor – I usually keep mine about 2 weeks. It will vary a little bit as anything homemade does. I searched the internet and some sources say simple syrup will last up to 4 weeks, but your results may vary! I hope you love the syrup!

  4. What kind of lavender did you use? A lot of websites say use only lavender that is ok for consumption. I really want to make this! Big fan of lavender lattes 🙂

    1. Hi Margaryta, definitely use culinary lavender! You can find it at some grocery stores, spice stores or online. It’s the best price if you can find it in bulk! I hope you love the latte!

    I was really happy and surprised that this worked for me. I’ve no experience with any barista work whatsoever, and I took a shot at this because I miss the lavender lattes at Bibble and Sip in NYC. I use three teaspoons of the syrup per cup, but I also love strong lavender flavor. Thanks for the recipe.

    1. Hi Olive – I’m so happy to hear that you loved it! That is so funny, I actually went to Bibble and Sip when I was in NYC two years ago. I had to get the Lavender Latte to compare to mine! What a fun place that was.

    Lavender Latte’s are seriously my FAVORITE thing in the entire world and I am fully addicted. My friends hate me because every coffee shop we go to, I have to ask if they have lavender. (If they don’t then boo.) Annyways, thank you so much for this post! You are seriously my favorite person right now! AND I love that you made it easy for people to make it without fancy equipment! 5 stars! <3

    1. Hi Megan – Thank you, I’m so happy to hear that! I love ordering them at coffee shops too, so that was why I decided to try to figure out how to make them at home! I hope you love it!

  7. Just made this and it was yummy! Perfect for a slow Saturday morning. I Sprinkled some cardamom and lavender on top. Will definitely be making until the lavender syrup runs out, and then I’ll make more! Thanks so much for the recipe.

    I tried this today and it made my day! I would love to tell thank you for sharing the recipe <3 I'm wondering, How long shall I keep the lavender Syrup in fridge or room temperature? Thanks so much and have a nice day <3

    1. Hi Muneera! I am so glad that you made it and loved it! Keep the syrup in the fridge, it should last several weeks.

  9. I am not a coffee drinker but I am totally enthralled with your syrups! I can think of a million drinks I can make with those!!!

    1. Coffee is sooo much better with syrups! I think so anyway, but I also do love my morning coffee. Thanks Jennifer!

  10. This shot is so pretty! I planted some lavender this year and John asked me what I’ll do with it I immediately thought I’m making this amazing lavender latte of Meghan’s!
