Starbucks really knows what they’re doing. As temperatures are rising, they’re dropping new menu items left and right — this time, they’re releasing a brand new menu entirely. Enter, the Starbucks Sunset Menu.

The Sunset Menu will be offered every day after 3p.m., and includes two trifles and three new granita flavors. The Starbucks website says, “Whether you’re looking for a drink or a bite, both pair perfectly with the setting sun. Try the new tastes of summer before they’re gone.”

We need to do a deep dive, here. A granita is a traditional frosty Italian confection, and is traditionally made with shaved ice and sweetened, fruity syrup, though one of theirs is actually made with caramel and espresso (OMG). Without further ado, the flavor variations that Starbucks is serving up will be:

Caramel Espresso Granita

As for the trifles, they look incredibly delicious as well. They’re layers of either chocolate brownie or strawberry shortcake, whipped cream, and drizzle, hand-prepared on the SPOT by baristas. Here are the flavors:

Our mouths are absolutely watering. These treats are available beginning TODAY, June 14th, at 3p.m. — so go out there and treat yourself.
