If there was a Mount Rushmore of lattes, the lavender latte would be on it. Lavender lattes are best known for those crisp spring mornings or cloudy days that call for a cozy blanket or your favorite hoodie and a Spotify playlist. There is something about lavender's fragrance that puts us at ease and enjoying it in a drink is a plus. There are different ways you can make a lavender latte. Some cafes only add vanilla to their latte, while others only add espresso, and there are a few that add both. If you are really adventurous, substitute espresso for earl grey or chamomile tea. That is a unique and enjoyable pair of flavors. The key is the quality of the lavender. The fresher the lavender you have the better the taste. Organic is a huge plus. Either way, the next time you are at your favorite cafe, if they have the lavender latte, give it a try.
