For the Lavender Syrup:
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon dried culinary lavender buds
For the Latte:
- 1 shot of espresso (or 1/2 cup strong brewed coffee)
- 1 cup milk (whole milk or your preferred alternative)
- Lavender syrup
- Dried lavender buds (for garnish)
1. Craft the Lavender Syrup:
- In a small saucepan, combine water, granulated sugar, and dried lavender buds.
- Bring the mixture to a gentle boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
- Reduce the heat and let it simmer for 5-7 minutes to infuse the syrup with lavender flavor.
- Remove from heat, strain the syrup to remove the lavender buds, and let it cool.
2. Prepare the Latte:
- Brew a shot of espresso using your preferred method or make a strong cup of coffee.
- In a separate saucepan, heat the milk until hot but not boiling. Froth the milk using a frother or whisk until it becomes creamy.
- Pour the hot espresso into your favorite mug.
- Add the desired amount of Lavender syrup to the espresso and stir well.
- Gently pour the frothy milk over the lavender-infused espresso.
3. Garnish Your Lavender Latte:
- Sprinkle a pinch of dried lavender buds over the frothy milk for a visual and aromatic garnish.
- Optionally, you can add a lavender sprig for an extra touch of elegance.
Tips and Variations:
- Adjust the sweetness by varying the amount of Lavender syrup according to your taste.
- Experiment with different milk alternatives such as almond or oat milk for a personalized twist.
- Add a dash of vanilla extract for an additional layer of flavor.
