Starbucks Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew

Looking for something new to try this summer at Starbucks?  These sweet new beverages from Starbucks will be sure to help you cool off in hot weather:

Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato

Starbucks’ Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato is the first beverage to feature single-origin Sumatran Coconut Milk, and is made to order with coconut milk, a hint of White Chocolate Mocha sauce, marked with espresso and finished with caramel and mocha sauces. Five perfectly balanced layers of handcrafted, summer espresso sweetness, this decadent drink with a tropical twist will take you straight to the beach.

Teavana Shaken Iced Berry Sangria Herbal Tea

A patio season favourite, Canadians are no stranger to Sangria. Hand shaken 10 times to bring out the delicious, distinct flavours, Starbucks’ Teavana Shaken Berry Sangria Herbal Tea is a combination of freshly brewed Teavana iced Passion Tango tea, a blend of hibiscus, lemongrass, and apple flavours, hand shaken with apple juice, berries, orange slices and ice. The end result is a refreshingly vibrant tea with a sweet and tart finish.

Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew

Introduced to Canada last summer, Starbucks Cold Brew Coffee is slow-steeped for 20 hours with no heat, offering a super smooth, full-bodied flavor. The new flavour for this summer is a Vanilla Sweet Cream flavour, made with a float of house-made vanilla sweet cream for a lightly sweetened, rounded finish.

3 Flavours of Granitas

This Italian-inspired dessert is like a grown-up snow cone. Available in three flavours (Caramel Espresso Granita, Strawberry Lemon Limeade Granita, and Youthberry White Tea Granita), Granitas are a light and refreshing way to cool down on a hot summer night.  Only available after 3pm as part of Starbucks Canada’s new Sunset Menu.

2 Flavours of Trifles

Also on the after-3pm Sunset Menu, Starbucks’ new made-to-order Trifles come with bakery flavourites layered in a drink container, with whipped cream and drizzle on top.  Even though it comes in Starbucks’ cold beverage container, this is a summer dessert you eat with a spoon, not a straw.  Pick between Chocolate Brownie, or Strawberry Shortcake.

    I’m such a creature of habit when it comes to my coffee order but I am actually so excited to try these! I’m especially curious about the granita!
