A Nacogdoches man is bragging about having bought the 'most expensive Starbucks drink in the world' at $23.60.

He just waited a year to do so.

According to a blog post by Logan Warren, 22, he decided to use his Starbucks Rewards card to see how much he could charge on a 31-ounce cup.

Warren said the drink was a Java Chip Frappuccino in a Trenta cup, with 16 shots of espresso, a shot of soy milk, caramel flavoring, banana puree, strawberry puree, vanilla beans, Matcha powder, protein powder and a drizzle of caramel and mocha.

A picture of a receipt confirms Warren racked up a $23.60 bill, but did not have to pay a dime. The receipt is dated March 3, 2011.

Warren says the drink contained 1,400 milligrams of caffeine.

"If I drank this all at once, it would put me in the hospital," Warren wrote.

But how did it taste? Warren said it was "tolerable, but not good."

Warren's blog post was written on Feb. 14 and caught the attention of at least one national writer, as it was covered by Piper Weiss at Yahoo Shine.
