Behold, a regular Starbucks consumer has unleashed what’s known as the most expensive drink in Starbucks history. A man identified as “Andrew” ordered a huge Starbucks drink, and from the looks of it, it’s enough to give someone a heart attack in one sitting.
A 60-espresso shot in a 128-ounce milkshake serving wound up costing one avid Starbucks customer a whopping $54.75. That’s right, if you wish, Starbucks has a drink out there that can be purchased for the cost of $54.75.
Fortunately for Andrew, he’s an exclusive “Gold” member because of his loyalty to Starbucks. This means that he was able to score a free drink for every 12 drinks he purchased as a gold member. So, he decided to make his free coffee the most expensive one on the list. Andrew, who used a 2013 YouTube video which featured the previous record holder as a guide, was up for the task and beat the previous Starbucks order of $47.30 for his mega drink.
According to an e-mail sent to the Consumerist blog, Andrew said he had specifications for his Starbucks order. His Starbucks order was called “sexatinguple vanilla bean mocha Frappuccino.”
For those who aren’t in the know or don’t readily have a secret Starbucks menu at your fingertips, you will have to ask your local barista because all of the contents of the drink aren’t known yet.
This is the Starbucks drink in all of its glory:
According to the Starbucks super customer, he wanted to order something that would both break the record holder price and taste delightful.
“The $47.30 guy put in two bananas, strawberry, matcha powder, pumpkin spice, and lots of other things that probably don’t go well together and definitely don’t go well with 40 shots of espresso. They help raise the price, so I can’t fault him for the strategy, but I didn’t want to go that route.”
He continued to explain his strategy:
“It took a few minutes to figure out all the math, but in the end, it took about 55 shots to get us over the $50 line, and we just rounded it up to 60 to make it easy.”
Apparently, Andrew was thinking about this stellar record-breaking order for a while. Luckily, Andrew confirmed that he lived past his consumption of a third of the drink, and he wrote, “I gotta say, it was delicious.”
As for what the cup looked like, Andrew decided to carry around his own 128 ounce glass so the drink could be enjoyed.
