What's in the most expensive Starbucks drink?February 15, 2012 @ 5:04 pm (Updated: 6:59 am - 2/16/12 )
How do you spend $23.60 on one drink at Starbucks?
Logan Warren says he did it with a drink that was "tolerable, but not good."
"Armed with my Starbucks Rewards card, I decided to take the opportunity to find out just how much money I could pour into a Trenta," he says. That's a 31 ounce cup Starbucks offers for iced drinks in some of its locations.
Warren and the barista set out to create the most expensive drink possible, and here it is:
Java Chip Frappuccino
16 shots of espresso
A shot of soy milk
A drizzle of caramel and mocha
Add all that stuff up and it not only does it cost over 20 bucks, it contains 1400 milligrams of caffeine.
I don't drink coffee, so I can't appreciate this drink. But I'm curious, what's the most money you've spent at Starbucks on a single drink?
Warren ordered this drink a year ago, so far no one has claimed to have topped his most-expensive Starbucks drink. If you try, let me know.
