The Internet is full of different recipes for “secret” drinks at Starbucks. While most are themed – often based on holidays or pop culture references – this one is named for the frap-lover who came up with the complex, 13-ingredient drink. It is simply called, “The Edward.”
People across the Internet were shocked by the drink that took 13 ingredients to create and cost $14 when it was all said and done. The drink went viral after it was posted to social media as many people took an interest in how they could get one of their own.
It can actually be ordered, all it requires is Venti Caramel Crunch Frappe with five bananas, seven pumps of dark caramel sauce, and one pump honey blend – sounds quite intense!
Unfortunately, when the barista shared the crazy drink in a now-deleted Tweet, they were let go by Starbucks for reportedly violating their social media policy. But there are no hard feelings towards Edward, who reached out to the employee via social media afterward to check on the barista, according to the New York Post.
While the drink that Edward ordered might be a lot for some people, if you feel like you are brave enough to give it a go next time you’re in a Starbucks, you can get the recipe’s details down below.
The barista re-posted a photo of “The Edward” on Twitter, saying, “On today’s episode of the post that got me fired.” Check it out:
