Starting today, Starbucks will be rolling out a brand new menu, created with the summer in mind. After 3 p.m. local time, Starbucks enthusiasts will officially be introduced to the Sunset Menu, which includes three new granita beverages: Caramel Espresso, Teavana Youthberry White Tea, and Strawberry Lemon Limeade. For those whom are unfamiliar with the concept of “granitas”, they are icy treats that originated in Italy and are made with scoops of finely shaved ice, lightly sweetened and topped with different flavorings.
According to Michelle Sundquist of Starbucks beverage development team, “our Sunset Menu is a refreshing way to jump-start your evening and take you into a long summer night.” The new granitas and Sunset Menu is available at participating Starbucks stores in the US and Canada for the rest of the summer. In addition to the granitas, Starbucks will also offer two new trifle options: Chocolate Brownie and Strawberry Shortcake.
