The cheapest way to overload on caffeine is to make coffee at home. But which Starbucks drink has the most caffeine for the least amount of money?
A former Starbucks manager recently talked about it on Reddit . . . and said the answer is the Starbucks Doubleshot on Ice. It’s an iced-coffee drink that has 225 milligrams of caffeine. Which is like two-and-a-half cups of normal coffee.
The price might vary a little bit depending on which Starbucks you go to. But you should get more caffeine for your money than any other drink. Just make sure you order the right thing. There’s a HOT version called the Doubleshot that only has 110 milligrams of caffeine.
And convenience stores sell a Starbucks drink that’s ALSO called a Doubleshot, but it’s not the same thing. Those only have about 130 milligrams of caffeine. If you want the version with 225 milligrams of caffeine, you have to order a “Doubleshot on Ice” from an actual barista. (Thrillist)
