What does $47.30 buy you these days?

Well, according to a Washington man, it gets you the most expensive – and possibly the sweetest – Starbucks drink in the world.

Beau Chevassus ordered a venti 40-shot "quadriginoctuple frap” at his local Starbucks in Enumclaw for his birthday, the New York Daily News reported.

UPI reported the previous world record for a Starbucks drink was $23.60.

What is a quadriginoctuple frap, you ask?

According to the New York Daily News, it is a mocha frappuccino with a lot of add-ons: soy mocha drizzle, matcha powder, protein powder, caramel brulee topping, stawberries, two bananas, caramel drizzle, frappuccino chips and vanilla bean.

The baristas gave Chevassus an extra eight shots on the house and, because it was his special day, they didn’t charge him for the heart-attack inducing drink.

"I did a lot, a lot of research on it," Chevassus was quoted as saying.

"Scouring all over YouTube and Google. I could not find anything really above 23 dollars."
