Some people complain about an expensive Starbucks drink that costs a few dollars, but one Starbucks drinker by the name of Andrew set out to craft himself a drink that most people wouldn't be able to afford on a regular basis.

Andrew's outrageous order turned out to be a Sexagintuple Vanilla Bean Mocha Frappuccino, which cost him a whopping $54.75—which is definitely a lot of caffeine and a lot of pocket change. However, as a member of Starbucks' loyalty program, Andrew is eligible for a free drink after every 12 purchased. As a result, the receipt shows a balance of $0.00, although the drink was the equivalent of well over $50. Before ordering the drink, the barista was informed that Andrew wanted to beat last year's record of $47, and together they figured out what drinks would beat the record.
