— When the new, rebooted season of Will & Grace comes back to the small screen on NBC on September 28th, fans can be certain that at least one character (ahem, Karen) will be bringing the party. Also bringing the party in real life will be the burger chain Shake Shack, which has created a pair of milkshakes especially for the occasion.

According to a press release, the two shakes were inspired by the personalities of the four main characters. The “Will & Grace Shake” will be non-alcoholic and cinnamon-forward, with Shake Shack fudge and marshmallow custard. The “Jack & Karen Shake,” on the other hand, will be boozy—prosecco-style—with strawberry custard, rainbow sprinkles and raspberry dust. The Shakes cost $5.99 a pop, $2 of which will be donated to GLAAD, a media monitoring and advocacy organization that fights for LGBTQ acceptance, and which works to “shape the narrative and provoke dialogue that leads to cultural change.”

The milkshakes are available at four Shake Shack locations (Herald Square and the Upper West Side in NYC, as well as the Hollywood and West Hollywood locations in LA) from September 18th until October 1st. Pick one up if you live nearby and celebrate the return of the show that Vice President Joe Biden believes “did more to educate the American public [...] than almost anything.”
