This rose cardamom latte is delicious, sweet, and floral to spice up your morning coffee routine. Who needs a coffee shop when you can make your own delicious cup at home? If you love fun flavors in your coffee, then you gotta try this rose cardamom latte! The spiced cardamom, paired with the subtle tones of the rose petals makes for a delicious coffee drink. Especially since visiting a coffee shop during these times is out of the question.
As part of my foodie adventures, I love to research and visit local coffee shops! In Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, I found this lovely little coffee shop called Capitol Joe’s. I wanted to try something off their seasonal menu, and the first thing that caught my eye was their rose cardamom latte. That first sip blew my mind! I’ve honestly never had anything rose-flavored, especially paired with cardamom. Together, they are bursting with floral and spice flavors. I wanted to recreate that and introduce these flavors to you guys as well, so I hope you guys enjoy this recipe.
Rose petal – My favorite product to use is culinary-grade dried rose petals from Suncore Foods. It’s also less intense than rose water!
Sugar – In order to make a rose-flavored simple syrup, we will need white sugar for this recipe.
Cardamom pods – I find that cardamom that is freshly ground from the pods has the best flavor compared to the pre-ground cardamom. If you can’t find cardamom pods, you can use pre-ground cardamom!
Rose has an interesting flavor that most people aren’t used to. So, I wanted to open your world to a new world of flavors. These pretty pink petals have some actual health benefits. They contain vitamins and antioxidants that can help nourish the skin, increase immunity, and reduce stress. Who doesn’t love health benefits, am I right? If you are not familiar with it, rose or any floral flavors are usually perfect for spring. But I decided to break these rules and just do what I want! So you can make these whenever you want, who cares!
