Spice up your morning coffee with a shot of homemade lavender simple syrup. A Lavender latte is delicious and not too girly, I promise: although Mother’s Day is right around the corner. One of these on my bedside table would be so wonderful to wake up to. Now, where has my butler gone? Jeeves!
What I love most about this coffee, besides how delicious it is, is the irony of it all. Lavender is known to be calming and relaxing. In fact, the root word comes from “lavare,” or to wash. Adding a few sprigs of lavender to your bath will perfume it in the most decadent way (all for free!) And caffeine? Well, its the opposite. So, I like to call this beverage the “Cancel-each-other-out” latte. Either way, it’s delicious.
