NEW YORK (PIX11) – While some complain that Starbucks hybrid coffee drinks are too expensive, others decided to break the record by ordering the priciest drink possible.
A young Texas man named Andrew recently broke the Starbucks record with a Sexagintuple Vanilla Bean Mocha Frappuccino, according to the Daily Mail.
The obscenely large, caffeinated drink is 128 ounces and contains 60 espresso shots – at a price of $54.75.
He didn’t actually fork over that much money, however. Andrew is apparently a loyal, card-carrying gold rewards member and gets a free drink after buying 12.
Since there’s no limit on the size, Andrew decided to beat the previous record of $47 – the price of one man’s 48-shot Frappuccino.
Knowing the drink would be too big, Andrew brought in his own 128-ounce cup — which looks more like a vase.
The man said that he only finished about a third of the drink, and put the rest away for later.
