Lavender Cardamom Fizz

Last winter at one of the coffee shops in Rochester I tried a lavender cardamom steamer and from then on I would go out of my way to swing by there anytime I was in the city to grab one for myself. Steamers are always so soothing and I loved the mix of the two flavors. Since it’s not quite cold enough for steamers (although the cold sure seems to be rolling in quickly this year) and I have a huge bush of lavender growing in the backyard – I decided to try out a mocktail using those two flavors! I added a little egg white to give it a bit of the creaminess of the steamer. This drink is SO good.Lavender Cardamom Fizz
