This sweet lavender syrup, also called lavender simple syrup, is perfect for adding a floral touch to any drink. Create lavender flavored lattes, cocktails, teas, sodas or lemonades just by mixing a spoonful into your drink.


  • ⅓ cup fresh lavender
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup water


  1. Simmer the syrup. Maintain a very gentle simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. The sugar should be fully dissolved. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Pass the syrup through a fine mesh sieve to remove the lavender pieces. Let the syrup cool to room temperature before using it in your drink.


  • Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • Crystallization: The syrup may thicken up too much or crystallize after being stored in the fridge. If this happens add a couple drops of water at a time and heat on low heat over the stovetop if necessary.
