DIY Lavender Simple Syrup

One of our summer time favorites is lavender lattes. Last summer we carried a lavender syrup in our cafe, and this year we've decided to bring it back alongside the warmer weather. Our good friends over at the CWE Farm have given us some locally grown lavender to try this with and we're loving how the floral flavors mix so well with espresso.
