“We wanted something that was cool, but light,” Michelle Sundquist, a member of the company's beverage development team, said in a press release. Here's how Starbucks describes each of the three Granita flavors:
Caramel Espresso Granita: A scoop of slightly sweetened, finely shaved ice topped with bold espresso shots, a splash of cream, and finished with caramel drizzle.
Strawberry Lemon Limeade Granita: A scoop of lemonade flavored, finely shaved ice blended with strawberry slices and topped with house-made limeade.
Teavana Youthberry White Tea Granita: Refreshing lemonade flavored, finely shaved ice topped with Teavana Youthberry White tea that combines white tea, pineapple, acai and hibiscus.
