Starbucks’s New Icy Granitas Are the Perfect Solution for the Summer Heat
Just when you thought Starbucks’s summer menu couldn’t get any better, the chain comes out with a new icy beverage to switch up your standard coffee order.
Three new Starbucks Granitas are available in stores today, and they sound like the perfect solution to a sweaty summer day.
The Granitas are available in three flavors: Caramel Espresso, Teavana Youthberry White Tea, and Strawberry Lemon Limeade. Based on the Italian icy treat, they are made with a scoop of finely shaved ice that is lightly sweetened and then topped with the flavor of your choice.
But that’s not all that Starbucks is adding to its Sunset Menu, available after 3 p.m. in participating U.S. and Canada stores: The chain will now serve Chocolate Brownie and Strawberry Shortcake Trifles. The desserts are topped with whipped cream and either a mocha or strawberry drizzle, respectively. As if we needed another reason to indulge: They’re seriously Instagram-worthy.
Between these icy treats and their new Double Double Fudge Bar Frappuccino, we’re going to have big decisions to make on our afternoon coffee run. If you're more into DIY, this strawberry granita recipe will also hit the spot.
