Lavender Honey Simple Syrup

Lavender Honey Simple Syrup

I recently started making this lavender honey simple syrup to put in my afternoon oat milk latte, and it’s probably my favorite thing that I have all day.

I’m not usually into floral flavors, but several years ago, I took the recommendation from the barista at Spy House in Minneapolis to try their Spy Girl, a lavender honey latte, and I loved it so much that it's now my regular order there.

Something about the combination of the lavender and the honey gives it almost a Fruity Pebbles vibe? It's sweet, but not cloying, and this recipe is pretty similar in flavor to the Spy Girl of my heart, without the commute. 



Lavender Honey Simple Syrup


  • 3TBS Lavender Buds (fresh or dried) 
  • 1C Honey
  • 1C Water


  1. In a small sauce pot over med-hi heat, bring all ingredients to a gentle boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 15min. 
  2. Remove from heat and let steep for 15-30min. 
  3. Strain into an airtight container and keep in the fridge for 4-6 weeks. Use 2-4TBS in coffee or use in place of simple syrup in cocktail and mocktail recipes 1:1.
