Homemade Honey Lavender Coffee Syrup

A few weeks ago when a friend of mine was in town, we visited a local coffee shop and both ended up ordering the same drink – an iced honey lavender latte. I’m not usually one for trying new flavors, but the honey / lavender combination was one that had intrigued me for a while.

Let me tell you, it was SO good. Such an unexpected trio of flavor, yet they melded together beautifully to make a sweet and refreshing drink. I love that they are all natural flavors – coffee, honey, and lavender. I spent the rest of the day raving about it and decided that I would figure out how to replicate it at home.

While I haven’t quite achieved coffeehouse-level flavor yet (to be honest, I’ve only made this recipe once), this simple syrup is delicious and a perfect addition to your summer iced coffee.

Honey Lavender Coffee Syrup

  • Combine all ingredients in a small pot on the stove and bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, stir for 10 seconds then remove form heat. Continue stirring until all the honey is dissolved, then let the mixture cool completely.
  • Once cooled, pour the syrup through a fine mesh strainer to remove the lavender. Discard the flowers. Store the honey lavender syrup in an air-tight glass container in the fridge.
