Caffeine lovers, rejoice! Starbucks is adding a new line of summer drinks to their menu, and they all sound absolutely delicious. The three new menu items are a part of Starbucks' new Sunset Menu, which means you'll only be able to get the items after 3 p.m. The three granitas (tea or coffee poured over shaved ice) became available in stores nationwide on June 14.
The Strawberry Lemon Limeade Granita is a refreshing blend of lemonade-flavored ice, limeade and strawberry slices. The Teavana Youthberry White Tea Granita uses the same lemonade-flavored ice and is topped with a fruity tea. The third drink is the Caramel Espresso Granita and is made from espresso shots, cream and caramel drizzle being poured over shaved ice.
The Chocolate Brownie Trifle and the Strawberry Shortcake Trifle are two desserts that look too good to be true. The Chocolate Brownie Trifle is made up of chocolate brownie bites, whipped cream and mocha sauce drizzled on top. The strawberry delight has vanilla bean scones topped with whipped cream and strawberry sauce.
Right now, when you bring your receipt in after 3 p.m. from your morning purchase, you'll get a $3 chocolate granita or strawberry trifle. This sounds like the start of a bad habit.
These special new treats won't last the whole year, so get your fill of these refreshing granitas and scrumptious trifles while they're still available.
