I 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.
First 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.I 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
Such a great post!! Love it!
This looks great! I feel the same way about rosemary!
this looks amazing
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!
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?
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!
Thank you so much for this recipe! Look, I was seriously wishfully imaginging it: http://jessieammons.blogspot.com/2013/01/lavendaah-lievendur.html
Rosemary syrup is also wonderful in fresh lemonade!
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.
Yummy! That looks so good, I’ve gotta try this!
I loved it!!! The taste is just perfect.. Drinking rosemary coffee and blogging about it as we speak!
Happy Birthday, Emma! Hope it’s a great one 🙂
This syrup would be amazing on goats cheese! Give it a go, I promise you it will be a taste sensation. x
I don’t even like coffee, but I’m considering giving this a try!
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!
