Priciest Starbucks drink is $47.30 worth of wake-up

Some people climb mountains. Others explore uncharted wilderness. Beau Chevassus aimed to order the most expensive drink Starbucks could concoct.

The Washington state man brought his own 52-ounce coffee mug to the coffee chain. There, he proceeded to order 48 shots of espresso, some protein powder, two bananas, a few caramel drizzle Frappuccino chips, some vanilla bean and a little soy.

He called it the "Quadriginoctuple Frap."

Price tag: $47.30.

This blew away the previous record holder, a $23.60 drink boasting one Java Chip Frappuccino in a Trenta cup, 16 shots of espresso, a shot of soy milk, caramel flavoring, banana puree, strawberry puree, vanilla beans, matcha powder, protein powder, and some caramel and mocha.

"I did it for fun, for a bit of entertainment and to see if it is at all possible," Chevassus, 27, told the New York Daily News. "I was surprised how cool the Starbucks employees were. They seemed almost more interested in trying to set the record than I was."

Chevassus didn't guzzle that caffeine kick in the pants all at once. It took him a few days to finish it.

And best of all, he didn't even have to pay for it. It was Chevassus' birthday. Starbucks picked up the tab.
