Hurricane, WV man orders most expensive Starbucks drink ever

Posted: Updated:
TEAYS VALLEY, WV - After nearly two hours and 77-shots of espresso, one man received the most expensive drink Starbucks has ever sold.

Earlier this month for his 30th birthday, Jarrod Johnson of Hurricane purchased the record breaking $71.35 mocha chip frappuccino at the Huntington Mall.

Luckily, for Johnson the drink was free due to Starbucks free birthday promotion. He said he's got quite the reaction to his drink purchase.

"I've heard that I'm a little crazy for doing it. A lot of people really liked it and thought it was neat. Other coworkers got to have Starbucks with me. They are all glad I did it," said Johnson.

Johnson added the drink was put into a ten gallon cooler as the drink came out to be about five gallons. He says he still has about two gallons of it still in his freezer.

According to the website Caffeine Informer, the second-most expensive Starbucks drink is a $59.75.
