When it came time for Logan Warren to cash in on his Starbucks birthday drink, he decided to be a little more creative than a mocha Frappucino.
Instead, he set out to create a custom beverage that is the most expensive Starbucks drink in the world. The total: $23.60 (but free after his Starbucks Reward coupon). He writes in his blog:
There’s no official record for most expensive Starbucks drinks, but CNET notes Warren’s concoction beat the last claim to the title, a modified venti white chocolate mocha ordered in 2011, totaling $20.65.
How did it taste? “Tolerable, but not good,” Warren said. “Imagine a coffee-based health food smoothie that will put you in the hospital if you drink it all. That’s how it tastes…like Jillian Michaels with a touch of Chuck Norris.”
I wouldn’t expect 1400mg of caffeine to taste good. “If I drank this all at once, it would put me in the hospital. Two of these would kill me.”
We assume he didn’t celebrate his birthday in the emergency room.
