Whether or not you’re a fan of the sitcom Will & Grace, which is making its return to television later this month after 11 years off the air, shake-loving alcoholics and alcohol-loving shakeaholics have the show to thank for a brilliant new creation from shake-and-burger chain Shake Shack.

One of a pair of new dessert beverages dropping in honor of the hit show’s return counts prosecco, the bubbly Italian white wine, among its ingredients.

Thanks to a partnership with the show, Shake Shack will be selling a Will & Grace Shake and a Jack & Karen Shake this September, but the latter is the one we’re really interested in: “Strawberry frozen custard blended with prosecco and topped with whipped cream, rainbow sprinkles and raspberry dust,” according to a press release.

The Will & Grace Shake is disappointingly sober, but still sounds fudging delicious: “Cinnamon marshmallow frozen custard blended with Shack fudge and topped with whipped cream and cinnamon sugar.”

The shakes will only be available from September 18 to October 1 at $5.99 a pop. The restaurant and NBC will donate $2 to GLAAD for each Will & Grace-themed shake sold.

Bummer alert: These enticing, limited-edition drinks will only be available at four Shake Shacks in the country. Two are in New York City—the Herald Square (1333 Broadway) and Upper West Side (366 Columbus Ave) locations—and the other two are in Los Angeles—Hollywood (6201 Hollywood Blvd) and West Hollywood (8520 Santa Monica Blvd).
