Equipment

  • fine mesh strainer
  • small pot

Ingredients
  

  • 1 tbsp dried lavender flowers
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup sugar

Instructions
 

  • Place ½ cup water in a pot and add ½ cup sugar. Bring to a boil and stir to dissolve.
  • Add 1 tbsp of dried lavender flowers, leaving the pot to a boil for just 1 additional minute. Remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Strain the lavender buds from the syrup and place the syrup in a glass jar.
  • Once cooled, cover with lid and refrigerate. This syrup will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Notes

Avoid adding too much lavender to the syrup. Too much will lead to a more bitter taste. 1 tbsp (+/- 1 tsp) is enough to add a delicate flavor without being bitter. 
Syrup can be added alone to coffee or can be used to make a delicious lavender latte. You can even use this in place of regular simple syrup for a fun cocktail!
