Honey Lavender Iced Latte
I don’t know about you, but I love a refreshing iced latte during these hot summer months. Hot coffee just never sounds that appealing when it is literally 90 degrees outside. I am also a sucker for a pretty drink, and this recipe I am about to share with you is nothing short of aesthetically pleasing.
I was walking to my mailbox with my sweet dachshund, Rolo, and I had this idea after sanitizing my hands with our new scent—Sweet Caroline! Sweet Caroline has a honey lavender scent, so I thought why not make a Honey Lavender Iced Latte. Lavender might sound a little odd for consumption, but I assure you it compliments well with the honey and the coffee flavors. It has just the right amount of a floral taste to it. I was able to find edible lavender at Whole Foods! You can also find lavender syrups as well at grocery stores. Cold-brew coffee works best for this recipe, but you can also use any kind of coffee you’d like. You can also use any type of milk you prefer—dairy or nondairy. You can truly make it your own.
So let’s start assembling this pretty latte!
Honey Lavender Iced Latte Ingredients:
-cold brew coffee
-milk of choice: dairy or nondairy
-edible lavender/lavender syrup
Find a pretty, clear glass to use. I used a crystal whiskey glass; I love it when I can see the layers in a latte! Fill this glass with about 5 ice cubes.
Pour the cold brew coffee into the glass about 3/4ths of the way full. You want to save some room for the milk.
I then sweetened the coffee a bit with the amount of honey I wished to use. The sweeter the better for me! You can also add in the lavender syrup here if you have some. I did not have any while making mine, but the edible lavender gives it just enough lavender taste for me.
Next, I filled the remainder of the glass with the milk. I frothed my milk with a French Press! Did you know your French Press could do that? Apparently there are tons of different things you can do with a French Press besides making coffee! All you have to do is poor about ½ cup of milk into the French Press and give it a few fast pumps and it froths right up!
You now want to garnish your latte with a few drizzles of honey and sprinkle on the edible lavender. Pretty, right? Your latte is now ready to enjoy!
