With sunlight long into the evenings, people make the most out of every minute of their day. Starting today (June 14) Starbucks is bringing new treats to savor as the sun goes down with its Sunset Menu, available after 3 p.m. in participating stores in the U.S. and Canada throughout the summer.
On the Sunset Menu are three new Starbucks® Granitas, a twist on the Italian icy treat, made with a scoop of finely shaved ice that is lightly sweetened and topped with bold espresso, white tea or limeade. Light and refreshing, Granitas are available in three flavors: Caramel Espresso, Teavana® Youthberry® White Tea and Strawberry Lemon Limeade.
“We wanted something that was cool, but light,” said Michelle Sundquist from Starbucks beverage development team. “Our Sunset Menu is a refreshing way to jump-start your evening and take you into a long summer night.”
In addition to handcrafted Granitas, Starbucks Sunset Menu will feature Trifles. The desserts are hand-prepared with layers of whipped cream and a mocha or strawberry drizzle. Trifles are available in two flavors: Chocolate Brownie and Strawberry Shortcake.
