Last year, we did a post about the most expensive Starbucks drink. $23.60 drinks are sooooo 2012 though. In 2013, the most expensive Starbucks drink came out to a whopping $47.30.
The infamous drink is a Quadriginoctuple Frap, and the main contributor to the phenomenal cost is the 48 shots of espresso. 48 shots? I’ve had a triple shot latte before and thought I was going to have a heart attack. Adding to the cost was also soy milk, mocha drizzle, matcha powder, protein powder, caramel brulee topping, strawberries, two bananas, caramel drizzle, frappuccino chips, vanilla bean and whipped cream.
According to the man who ordered the drink, Beau Chevassus, he actually put a lot of thought and research into finding the perfect combination to get such an expensive drink. The baristas at his local Starbucks were excited to help out.
Yup, it’s $47.30, but he did save ten cents by bringing in his own travel mug.
