As a gold member of My Starbucks Rewards, any customer who racks up 12 stars can "redeem any handcrafted beverage, any bottled drink . . . or any food item of your choice" for free. Seeing the obvious loophole in the system, Andrew reaped the benefit for all its worth. He walked up to the counter and informed the barista, "So, this might sound a little weird, but I saw a video on YouTube where a guy orders the most expensive Starbucks drink. I want to beat the record."
The previous winner, a 52-ounce Quadriginoctuple Frap, contained 48 shots of espresso and cost a whopping $47.30. Andrew explains, "It took a few minutes to figure out all the math, but in the end, it took about 55 shots to get us over the $50 line, and we just rounded it up to 60 to make it easy."
