Swifties, assemble! In the wake of the most viral concert tour of all time—The Eras Tour—we’ve gathered four ways to make a Taylor Swift-inspired lavender haze drink to quench your thirst and give you enough energy to sustain an all-night T. Swift dance party. (Maybe—can't make any promises.)
Haven't heard “Lavender Haze” blaring on the radio and had it stuck in your head for endless (mid)nights? You're in for a treat. Just be sure to have one of these lavender-infused beverages on tap to pair. So, are you…ready for it?
Health benefits of lavender
There’s no denying that lavender haze is a chill song. According to Rachelle Robinett, a registered herbalist and the founder of Supernatural, this is fitting: lavender is a nervine herb that’s extremely calming for the body. "Nervine means an herb that loves your nervous system. It’s used for brain function, things like focus, for supporting mood, and specifically for sleep; we found that lavender helps improve sleep latency. Sleep latency is the amount of time it takes for us to fall asleep, and lavender also improves sleep quality,” Robinett shared with Well+Good.
4 dreamy ways to make a lavender haze drink
1. Lavender Haze Latte
Every so often, life blesses us with a union of two things that are simply better together. Case in point: two shots of espresso (yes, two, who are we kidding) and a few pumps of lavender syrup. In a recent TikTok video by @tilliero, Tillie Ro shows us how to make the perfect coffee drink for the one and only Taylor. And, although some may opt for a boozy pregame before a concert, according to Ro’s caption, this lavender haze oat milk latte is all you need to get the vibes going and the energy flowing before you head to the concert (or any other occasion for that matter).

2. Creamy Lavender Haze Latte
When it comes to coffee drinks, we can’t stop, won’t stop. (Sorry, not sorry.) So, let us introduce you to the creamiest and dreamiest (ever!) lavender haze latte by @jessica_furniss. To make it, Jessica Furniss combines oat milk, vanilla creamer, lavender syrup, and purple food coloring (BTW, this plant-based food coloring has no artificial dyes) and whips it to perfection using a handheld frother. Once thick and creamy, she transfers it to a cup, adds espresso, and tops it with a few dried lavender flowers. B-e-a-utiful. Although Furniss chose to go the coffee route this time, the drink can also be made with other gut-healthy drink favorites like matcha or tea instead. Cheers!

3. Lavender Syrup Latte
Let us clue you in on a little secret: Making homemade lavender syrup is beyond easy. But, in case you need clarification, @lifewithtuyen shows us exactly how to do it. You only need three ingredients: Dried lavender, sugar, and water. Next, you’ll combine the ingredients in a pot, bring it to a boil, and once the flavors have had a chance to combine to their full glory, you’ll want to strain the mixture, leaving behind a lavender-infused syrup ideal for adding to just about anything. Think: Coffee, tea, smoothies; the list goes on—easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

4. Blueberry Tahini Lavender Smoothie
Okay, okay, we’ll give the coffee content a break (for a millisecond) to give you this decadent blueberry lavender smoothie by @hannahupdegraff that’s sure to knock your socks off, especially on a sweltering hot day. Combine bananas, blueberries, lavender, tahini, and the milk of your choice in a blender, and boom—the perfect lavender haze effect. (With a punch of antioxidants and gut-healthy fiber, of course.) And ICYMI, blueberries are a super source of longevity-boosting antioxidants (known as anthocyanins), which have been linked to helping protect against free radical damage and decreasing your risk of chronic health conditions.
