Honey Lavender Iced Latte

For the Iced Latte:

  • 1 1/2 to 2 TBS of lavender honey syrup (recipe below)
  • 1 cup coffee concentrate (recipe below)
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • Ice

Combine your first three ingredients and pour over ice!

Lavender Honey Syrup

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  1. Add all your ingredients in a small saucepan. Stir on medium to low heat until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Let it continue to simmer on low for 5-7 minutes but keep on eye on it so it doesn't burn!
  3. Remove from heat, let cool and strain.

Coffee Concentrate

  • 2/3 cup of coarse ground coffee
  • 3 TBS brown sugar
  • 3 cups of cold water
  1. Combine and stir your coffee grounds, brown sugar and water in a container with a tight lid. Let sit in your fridge overnight or for 8-10 hours.
  2. After it's done "brewing", stir, pour into a French Press, stir again, add the top and gently press down the grounds.

This girl has such a great heart and love for people. And a killer smile. Isn't she stunning? She's also our babysitter which makes her even more special to us. We're sad that she'll be leaving for Wyoming but excited to see where God leads her. Loved our time together shooting her senior pictures!

You guys, meet Erin. The beautiful talent behind Salt and Vine Photography. Go check out her work here! She's awesome!

We met up on a cold clear morning in a random field (which is no longer there. Boo!) and shot pictures at sunrise. It got awkward at times. I mean, two photographers who aren't used to being in front of the lens? Yeah, it got weird but it was so much fun!

Thankful for this friend.
