This is most definitely a pick me up but it doesn’t some cheap. Unless of course you have a rewards card…
America has a new priciest-ever Starbucks drink. The customer behind the beverage, identified only as Andrew, used his loyalty card to get a free Sexagintuple Vanilla Bean Mocha Frappuccino, a concoction made with 60 shots of espresso that happens to be worth $54.75.
Consumerist magazine calls it a new record — which apparently was the intention. Andrew says he was aiming to beat the record set last year: a $47.30 frap with a mere 40 shots and a long list of additives (from mocha drizzle to caramel Brule topping) that raised the price while seriously lowering the taste.
Andrew brought in his own mammoth glass to help him in his mission and it’s estimated that the drink contained 4.5 grams of caffeine. 10 grams is reportedly enough to cause death. Andrew says he drank about a third of his drink on site before taking the rest with him.
