When the flowers begin to peep through the soil it is the ideal time for a unique, bright, and light spring latte. Here is the queen’s take on a lavender infused-honey latte. The smell alone is evocative of a field of lavender on a warm spring day.
What you will need
- Double shot of espresso or 1/2 cup of strongly brewed coffee
- 1 tablespoon lavender infused honey (for a sweeter cup you can add more)
- 1/2 cup milk or non-dairy milk alternative
1.) Preheat your cup and add 1 tablespoon of lavender-infused honey. You can purchase this honey pre-made or create your own by combining 1 cup of honey with 2 tablespoons of culinary lavender. Bring the mixture to a boil and reduce the heat to medium. Leave the honey to boil for 5 minutes, then strain into a heat-resistant container and allow the mixture to reach room temperature.
2.) Add espresso or strongly brewed coffee to your cup.
3.) Steam and froth your milk. Next, using a spoon to hold back the foam, pour the milk into your cup over the coffee. For a dash of spring color, use food coloring in your milk before steaming. To create an Easter-ready lavender, add a few drops of red until a pale pink is achieved. Then, add blue, one drop at a time until the exact shade of violet desired is achieved.
4.) You can now drizzle extra honey on top of your latte for garnish.
