Lavender-Honey Simple Syrup (This is Amelia’s favourite!)

Yields about 8-10 ounces

Ingredients

2 teaspoons fresh lavender flowers (if using dried, cut this to 1 teaspoon)

½ cup granulated sugar

½ cup water

½ cup honey

Directions

1. Add all ingredients to a small saucepan. Turn heat to low and stir until sugar dissolves.

2. Simmer an additional 5-7 minutes, or until syrup coats the back of a spoon. (While simmering, watch carefully so it doesn’t boil over or burn.) It will thicken a bit more when cooled.

3. Remove from heat and let cool. If you prefer a smooth drink, strain out the lavender. Allow syrup to cool completely before using.

Quick Tip: You can use this to flavor hot lattes, cocktails, lemonade or a myriad of other drinks in addition to the iced latte recipe above!
