Adding rose to anything instantly makes it a little more gourmet and elegant. Floral coffee drinks are popping up everywhere and if you're anything like me - you simply can not resist treating yourself to a delicious drink made my favorite way - full of floral splendor.

What is a latte?

in English, a traditional latte refers to the classic Italian drink made with espresso and frothed milk. Traditionally, the espresso is brewed in a stovetop Moka pot and poured into a cut containing warm milk. Outside of Italy, a latte is traditionally served in an 8 oz glass with a single 30 ML or double 60 ML shot of espresso, and a layer of foamed milk (approximately 1/2 inch thick)

Variation inspiration:

Iced honey rose latte: For an iced rose latte, you will want to add an extra shot of espresso. You can simply add your milk of choice into the latte, frothed or not. For an iced latte, I like to add my espresso, syrup, and ice into a mason jar and shake it before pouring into my tall espresso glass.

Iced lattes generally come with more espresso due to being served in a tall glass, and often come sweetened, and in this case - we use a homemade rose honey to sweeten. You could also use floral sugar cubes or rose simple syrup. And of course, serve it over ice.

Tools you'll need for making lattes at home:

  • espresso machine or mocha pot (a cup of very strong coffee will do as well!)
  • milk frother

Before you make your lavender latte, you'll need some rose infused milk for frothing. That is where the beautiful rose flavor comes from.

How to make:

  • Make your espresso using your espresso maker or in a mocha pot.
  • Add in your shot of espresso, cold or hot into your glass of choice. Add two espresso shots for an iced lattes.
  • Add in your floral infused frothed milk to the top. Use a milk frother (this is the one we use at home) or hand held milk frother to froth your milk.
  • Garnish with some organic rose petals if you have them. Or try candied rose petals for a truly elegant touch.

Frequently asked questions:

Can I add flavored espresso?

Absolutely. Some vanilla flavored espresso is a great way to add additional flavor to your latte. You can also add a splash of vanilla extract your latte or frothed milk.

How can I serve my latte?

Add some floral iced cubes.

Serve with some candied edible flower petals.

Serve with some homemade floral marshmallows.

And of course, enjoy in a beautiful glass!

What milk do I need to use:

Whole milk works best for frothed milk on hot lattes. But if whole milk isn't for you, you can use barista style almond milk or oat milk. Make sure you're buying "barista style", or else it won't froth.
