Andrew Chifari, A Man In Texas Decided To Come Up With A Mission To Beat The Current Record For The Most Expensive Starbucks Drink In The World

He had recently watched last year’s famous quadringoctuple frap video where another customer used a similar birthday coupon to assemble a 48-shot beverage with a bunch of other pricey substances in order to reach the mind-boggling $47 goal. Andrew’s goal was to break that record, and to produce something that’s drinkable.

Armed With A Starbucks Gold Card And A 3.8 litre Glass, Andrew Explained His Mission To The Baristas

But Chifari didn't have to pay for the monster drink. As a gold member, if you buy 12 drinks, your 13th is free. That free drink can apply to any available drink, and Chifari is lucky his barista was on board.

Armed with a 128-ounce glass, Andrew strolled into Starbucks, ready to claim his prize. He got the baristas on his side and they worked as a team to think up the priciest possible concoction, Consumerist reports.

With 128-ounce glass in hand, Andrew stepped into Starbucks and enlisted the help of his friendly local Starbucks baristas.

Andrew Chifari claims to have created the world's most expensive Starbucks drink, containing 60 shots of espresso and costing a staggering $54.75. It's called the Sexagintuple Vanilla Bean Mocha Frappuccino.

Behold: the Sexagintuple Vanilla Bean Mocha Frappuccino, valued at $54.75

For those thinking of ordering a Sexagintuple Frap during their next Starbucks visit, think twice. Consumerist estimates that Andrew's drink contained 4.5 grams of caffeine and notes previous studies which claim 10 grams of caffeine is lethal to adults.

Andrew’s beverage would contain 4,500 milligrams (4.5 grams) of caffeine if made correctly. One expert told Popular Science that, not accounting for pre-existing medical conditions, a lethal overdose of caffeine for most adults would be about 10 grams.

Large doses of the drug will still make you feel nervous and jumpy, affecting your blood pressure and heart, and you should not drink sixty shots of espresso in one sitting, ever.

Chifari Didn't Finish The Drink In One Sitting, Drinking A Third Of It Before Finishing It Later

“I gotta say, it was delicious,” Chifari said, who only drank one-third of his order on the spot (that's 20 shots' worth). But he tweeted on Wednesday that he had almost finished drinking it.
