Lavender Simple Syrup

Last weekend hubs and I celebrated our anniversary/babymoon at Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego. It was literally perfect right down to the lavender infused coconut lemonade. We spent the days at the pool and just relaxed at the resort. We are not usually sit by the pool people but something about knowing that the next several years are going to be spent with little sleep and answering to a baby’s every need made me want to soak in all the relaxation.

I also wanted to enjoy an adult beverage… but I did not. Instead I drank delicious mocktails and got the idea for my lavender infused simple syrup. This can be used in mocktails, cocktails, coffee or baking for an extra flavor boost.

On our way out of San Diego we stopped at a little coffee shop called The King’s Craft Coffee Company¬†They had a DELICIOUS lavender latte that I had to learn to recreate at home.

I had a hot latte there but this week I recreated an iced lavender cold brew and loved every minute of it. Now that I know how easy it is to make simple syrup, I want to make more! What delicious and seasonal simple syrup recipes do you recommend?
