Lavender Simple Syrup Uses

  1. Use in place of regular simple syrup in lemonade to make Lavender Lemonade.
  2. Use to make Lavender Martinis or other flavored herbal cocktails.
  3. Stir into lattes as your sweetener (there's a delish lavender and honey latte I always get in Charleston!)

Additionally, does lavender syrup need to be refrigerated? Generally, the water is all 'bound up' with dissolved sugar so microorganisms can't use it to grow, but the lighter the syrup, the more available water it will have. In my experience, simple syrup is usually kept refrigerated except for small portions that will be used within a day or two.

Considering this, what does lavender syrup taste like?

Aromatic and floral, lavender is embraced for its calming, soothing properties. Our Lavender Syrup adds semi-sweet, herbal floral flavor and beautiful, light purple color to cocktails, lemonades, sodas and more. Monin Lavender Syrup lends floral taste and aroma to cocktails, mocktails, lemonades and sodas.

What can I cook with lavender?

Grind the lavender in a herb or coffee grinder or mash it with mortar and pestle. The spikes and leaves of culinary lavender can be used in most dishes in place of rosemary in most recipes. Use the spikes or stems for making fruit or shrimp kabobs. Just place your favorite fruit on the stems and grill.

Grind some lavender into sugar and use it in simple butter cookies or infuse cream for lavender-scented whipped or ice cream. Make your own dry blend of herbs and flowers (we like lavender with mint and rosemary) and rub on lamb chops or chicken wings before grilling.

How do you make lavender paste?

Add equal parts of lavender oil and water, mixing as you go until the consistency is smooth and creamy. Again, allowing the mix to mingle seems to improve it. As the paste dries out, add equal parts of water and oil. You can use lavender paste like any slip, but its specialty is in joining fired metal pieces.

Is Lavender good in coffee?

Lavender also seems to ask for a milky taste, and perhaps one of the best ways to enjoy lavender in coffee is to infuse milk with lavender and use that with an espresso. Of course, some people may say that the calming properties of lavender are not what you want when you need a coffee pick-me-up.

Does sugar free syrup need to be refrigerated?

Syrups and jams
And although no one wants to pour cold maple syrup all over their pancakes, it's important to refrigerate all syrups once they have been opened. Then it has to be refrigerated, and usually has a shelf life of about a month (though low- or no-sugar spreads may not last that long).
