'BUCKSWIRE—The record for the most expensive drink ordered at Starbucks has been shattered. With 60 shots of espresso, the "sexatinguple vanilla bean mocha Frappuccino" was sold to a man who carried in his own 128-oz. glass. A member of the coffee giant's customer loyalty program, he qualified for a free drink and didn't have to pay the $54.75 price tag. The previous record for the most costly S-bucks beverage ever ordered was $47.30. [-EN-]
