Why? Because ‘Merica, that’s why

The 128 oz. monster is being called the most expensive Starbucks drink order ever.

A Twitter user known only as Andrew ordered the behemoth at a Dallas Starbucks using his loyalty card, so it didn’t actually cost him any money, but the photo of his receipt posted to Twitter shows the ‘Sexagintuple Vanilla Bean Mocha Frappuccino’ would have cost him nearly $55.

In addition to the 60 shots of espresso, the drink contains mocha, white mocha, mocha drizzle, caramel drizzle, protein powder and hazelnut drizzle.  

When informed of the order, a spokesperson for Starbucks said, "This type of beverage order is totally excessive and not something we encourage people to do, nor is it safe."

 Oh, and just in case you are wondering where the barista found a container big enough to hold all of that liquid, Andrew tells the web site Consumerist that he brought his own glass.
