Andrew broke the previous known record of $47.30 by ordering a Sexagintuple Vanilla Bean Mocha Frappuccino, costing $54.75.

The drink included 60 espresso shots among the ingredients. That works out to about 4.5 grams of caffeine, whereas 10 grams would be a lethal overdose of caffeine for most adults. Don't worry, as Andrew says he only drank about one-third and saved the rest for later.
