Starbucks is back at it again with drool-inducing drinks, this time introducing three new concoctions that’ll make your list of fave summer drinks in no time. We’ve got the lowdown on the Caramel Espresso Granita, Youthberry® White Tea Granita and Strawberry Lemon Limeade Granita, plus two new food items!
Starbucks has rolled out five additions to its menu today, June 14, and we are here for it. With three icy dessert drinks — AKA granitas — and two trifles, the coffee chain knows how to hold our attention. Check it out!
Starbucks, why do you do this to us? We’re already addicted to macchiatos, Frappuccinos and lattes, and now we’ve got yet another reason to indulge. Starting today, *$ (star-bucks, get it?) will offer its Sunset Menu after 3:00 PM. First up is the Caramel Espresso Granita, which features shaved, sweetened ice, espresso, cream, and caramel drizzle — basically a jacked-up Caramel Macchiato. On the lighter side is the Youthberry® White Tea Granita, which consists of lemonade-flavored shaved ice and Teavana Youthberry White tea (tropical pineapple, fruity acai, and hibiscus). For an even fruitier option, you might go for the Strawberry Lemon Limeade Granita, which also has lemonade-flavored shaved ice, but contains strawberry slices and limeade, too. Okay, sign us up.
Still not enticed? Chocoholics will want to try the Chocolate Brownie Trifle with chocolate brownies topped with whipped cream and mocha drizzle, or the Strawberry Shortcake Trifle, which has mini vanilla bean scones topped with whipped cream and strawberry drizzle.
Wait, it gets better — if you bring in your morning receipt after 3:00 PM, you’ll qualify for a $3 granita or trifle. What a time to be alive.
