The Iced Lavender Latte

Today I'm sharing the most spring-like coffee beverage to ever exist - The Iced Lavender Latte from Jessica at How Sweet Eat's new cookbook The Pretty Dish. This is the second recipe I've made from the book, and I plan on making much more! It's such a great cookbook filled with a variety of recipes to suit all kinds of occasions! 

This lavender latte is made with cold brew, half and half, and a lavender simple syrup. As the name implies, the syrup is indeed simple, and add a fresh, springy flavor. It really is delicious!

I hope you enjoy this easy drink as much as I have! Happy Spring, friends! 

The Lavender Latte

Iced Coffee

In a saucepan over medium-low heat combine sugar, water, and lavender. Whisk until sugar is fully dissolved. Simmer and cook for 1 minute. Turn off the heat and set saucepan aside to allow the mixture to cool completely. Strain mixture into a glass jar to remove the lavender. Stir in the vanilla. Store glass jar in the fridge.
