Texas Man Orders World's Most Expensive Starbucks Drink

| by Emily Smith

A Texas man successfully created the world's most expensive Starbucks drink when he ordered the 128-ounce, 60-shot Sexagintuple Vanilla Bean Mocha Frappuccino.

Andrew, who is a Starbucks Gold member, decided to take advantage of the one free drink that the company offers for each 12 drink purchases. Determined to order the most expensive beverage the employees could think up, Andrew even brought his own cup for the massive drink.

"It took a few minutes to figure out all the math," Andrew said, "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."

Andrew's drink beat out the previous record-holding drink, which contained 40 shots and cost $47.30.

Though Andrew reported that the drink was delicious, he only drank a third of the beverage on the first day it was ordered. In total, it took five days to drink.

In a statement, Starbucks said that while it encourages drink customization, the 60-shot frappuccino was excessive. The company noted that the drink was not reflective of its high quality standards.
