I tried this recipe at home last week, and I haven't been able to stop drinking it ever since. While I love coffee and it's the aroma and the ritual of starting our day with a hot cup, I just adore lavender iced coffee all day long.

To make lavender iced coffee, I use lavender simple syrup, strong fresh brewed coffee, and rich cream. You can use any creamer of choice! You can absolutely substitute lavender simple syrup for lavender honey if desired.

How to make lavender simple syrup for coffee:

Gather your ingredients:

The process:

This 1:1 ratio is so simple, all it requires is 1 cup of water to 1 cup of sugar and ½ cup of fresh lavender. Although it's not necessary, I use ? cup when it's dried lavender. I also add ¼ cup of honey for it's beautiful ability to balance the floral flavor in this syrup. You will love it! Grab the full recipe here.

Sourcing dried lavender is simple! Simply buy some food grade lavender. I love this brand when I don't have any in my garden. If you're curious about edible flowers you can grow at home, read my post on the best edible flowers to grow in your garden.

If you don't want to make your own simple syrup, you can surely buy some. I like this brand because it isn't artificially purple colored like many others. And furthermore, if you don't want to make or buy simple syrup at all - simply add lavender infused honey for a healthier sweetened iced coffee. I am sharing some links below of where to buy my favorite lavender honey and simple syrup.

When making iced coffee, I simply brew a strong pot (8 cups) of coffee and pour it into a pitcher. I then add my lavender syrup and cream and mix well. Then I let it cool in the fridge before enjoying, and serve it over ice! So simple! And can be enjoyed right in the comfort of your garden.

As an aromatherapist, I would not recommend it. For one, even just one drop tastes far too strong in coffee, and two: you get a much better flavor from the syrup and honey.

Can I add flavored coffee to my lavender iced coffee?

Of course and in fact that's a wonderful idea. Hello vanilla coffee with lavender syrup!
