Starbucks has released a Sunset Menu with Granitas and Trifles offered exclusively after 3pm. What are Granitas & Trifles? Well Granitas are freshly shaved ice topped off with espresso, white tea, or lemonade. Trifles on the other hand are layers of whipped cream and drizzle with your choices of brownies or vanilla bean scones.
Granitas and Trifles are both great choices for a cool snack on a hot afternoon or evening.
The Official Granita choices are Carmel Espresso, Youthberry White Tea, or Strawberry Lemon Limeade. Alternatively, you can have a Chocolate Brownie Trifle or Strawberry Shortcake Trifle.
Starbucks was smart in coming out with this combination of 5 great treats since there is something there for everyone - the espresso lover, the tea lover, the lemonade freak, the chocolate addict, and the strawberry lover. I would gladly drink any of the 5 Granitas or Trifles depending on my mood - but for Granitas, I would have to choose the Carmel Espresso and for Trifles, I would choose the Chocolate Brownie - just personal preference.
