Try This: Rosemary Latte

Rosemary and honey syrup recipeI was inspired by my sister's latte syrups. So, like any good little sister, I decided to make some too. 🙂 I happened to have some left over rosemary in my refrigerator and so I decided to try a rosemary latte. I had never had one before but I love the smell and taste of rosemary. I have been obsessed with making homemade lattes after getting an espresso maker for Christmas.
Rosemary and honey syrupFirst I made a rosemary and honey syrup.

1 cup water
1/2 cup honey
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary.

Bring the water and honey to a boil while stirring to dissolve the honey. Turn the heat down to a simmer and add the rosemary sprigs. Let this cook down for 10-12 minutes until the mixture has thicken some. Remove from heat and allow to cool before use.Rosemary LatteI still have a ways to go with my latte making skills. But I must say that a rosemary latte is my new favorite! I love how the syrup turned out the perfect amount of sweet and savory without being too overpowering. I store my syrup in the refrigerator and will probably use most of it up within two weeks. Oh, and do you see how there is a rosemary sprig in the bottle? I just added that for aesthetics. It's not really necessary, so if you create this at home feel free to leave it out if you wish. Happy morning coffee! xo. Emma

  • This looks great! I feel the same way about rosemary!

  • Gotta give this a try. Rosemary is one of my favorite herbs.


  • I never even realized you could make a latte from home without a fancy machine-trying this out asap, thanks!

  • It’s up to us little sisters to copy everything the older does….even when we’re all grown up, haha! Love this idea! Thanks for sharing, lattes are my favorite!

  • Liz- absolutely!
    These syrups are perfect for any tea of coffee drink or even a lot of cocktails. :))

  • Would this taste ok just in regular coffee for those of us without an espresso machine?

  • Thank you so much for this recipe! Look, I was seriously wishfully imaginging it:


  • This is actually surprisingly delicious. The rosemary and honey flavors are subtle and compliment the espresso. I don’t have an espresso machine so I made a Turkish latte instead. Thanks for the constant inspiration!

  • I need to try to make my own syrup. I have some mint in the fridge that is starting to look a bit sad. I think it would be awesome to mix mint syrup with hot chocolate.

  • I don’t even like coffee, but I’m considering giving this a try!

  • I loved it!!! The taste is just perfect.. Drinking rosemary coffee and blogging about it as we speak!


  • This syrup would be amazing on goats cheese! Give it a go, I promise you it will be a taste sensation. x

  • For the none coffee drinkers . . .think about putting this in tea. Mmmmmmmmmm

  • YUM! I totally want to try this. I have never heard of doing this before.

  • Lovely idea! I am totally smitten with anything rosemary and recently had a lovely rosemary creme brulee!

  • Rosemary in a latte sounds a little strange, but good and savory at the same time!

  • not sure if i’m brave enough to stray from my favorites – but this is certainly an interesting idea!

  • We have lavender syrup at work (I work at a coffee shop) that I have always wanted to try, this sounds really good too!

  • Rosemary is my favourite herb. I love it with roasted sweet potato.

    Looks delicious – a great idea!

  • Wow…this sounds really lovely and a great idea for more than just a latte too!!!

    Thanks for sharing such a great idea!

  • this is such a cool recipe!
    Love that picture as well!

  • So cute! Love the rosemary garnish, it’s a great touch.

  • At first when I read ‘rosemary latte’ I was a little surprised in the flavor combination, but now that I think about it, if it’s combined with honey, it must be delicious. I think this would be even better with a few grates of fresh ginger!


  • I LOVE rosemary in sweet stuff. (Lavendar too… but that’s probably more common, right?) Rosemary in shortbread cookies is fab.

    I can’t wait until summer and I can have an herb garden – these syrup recipes have started a serious hankering!

  • I love that in the dead of winter my Rosemary is still thriving in the garden. Who knew it was an evergreen? Love this, will have to try!

  • This is unique I love it! I usually just buy pre-made syrups but you girls have inspired me to make some of my own and use some of my starting to wilt, herbs in the garden!

    Also just incase you were interested I recently did a post on my blog about Becoming a Home Barista, it’s full of tips for using an expresso machine which you may find useful:

  • This is really cool, & the sprig looks cute inside the bottle. Would be a good gift for a housewarming, too.

  • that sounds really great – i’m a huge fan of lattes but have never gone the rosemary route. thanks for the inspiration!

  • This sounds delicious – my rosemary bush is going nuts in my herb garden so now is the perfect time to try this.

  • I think that all of your projects looks so amazing. And they are very inspiring, too. Who does not want to have all of this lovely home made stuff?

  • yumm! i am so excited to try this! thanks for sharing 🙂

  • I don’t drink coffee, but I will try putting in my tea, see how that goes! Such pretty pics I had to try it for myself 🙂

  • I can’t drink coffee but I really like the sound of the rosemary syrup so will definitely make some to have in steamed milk 🙂

  • I would have never put those flavors together but it sounds good.

  • It sounds so tasty, that I think I will start drinking coffee just to have a chance of making such a syrup!

  • This looks soooooooo good!
    Thanks for making such AWESOME post, your blog is the best blog i have ever viewed!

  • This seems so fresh (both in taste and the creative idea!) You gals are so experimental 🙂 Love it!

  • That looks great and I done it before some years but I forgot the recipe. Great to see it, thanks. Have a nice day.

  • I’ve had an espresso machine for 3 weeks now and I’m crazy about it. I definitely want to try making my own coffee syrups. I would have never thought of rosemary and honey. Thanks for sharing Emma!

  • Sounds interesting, different but yummy! Definitely going to give this one a go.

  • This is one latte i haven’t tried before and was a little hesitant when it involved rosemary but it does kinda work. Thanks for yet another great latte idea!

  • i like rosemary in a sweet/savory combo! I might try this with brown rice syrup instead of honey. yummm

  • I’m not a big coffee drinker (actually none at all, hate the smell and the taste), but I can picture the honey-rosemary-taste in my hot milk. I’ll definitely give it a try soon.
    btw: Hello from Germany. :o)

  • I want an espresso machine so bad! I love all your recipes for the syrups! 🙂 Hopefully someday soon I will be able to make them myself 🙂

  • Hmmm…when I saw the title I thought “nahh…rosemary latte?”here in Greece we mostly use it in roast and things like this…but after reading your post,something changed and you got me.i’ll give it a try
