Wine-Infused Milkshakes

Shake Shack is Introducing the 'Jack & Karen Shake' with Prosecco

— September 15, 2017 — Lifestyle
Later this month, the Will & Grace spin-off Jack & Karen is set to premiere on NBC and Shake Shack is celebrating the revival of the show with a Jack & Karen Shake.

Beyond appealing to fans for the sake of nostalgia alone, the Jack & Karen Shake offers an ingredient that is uncommon to most fast casual restaurant chain milkshake menus—wine. The shake is made with a blend of frozen strawberry custard and Prosecco, plus decadent toppings like whipped cream, rainbow sprinkles and raspberry dust.

Alongside the Karen & Jack Shake, Shake Shack is also launching a Will & Grace Shake with cinnamon marshmallow frozen custard, fudge that is similarly dressed with whipped cream and cinnamon sugar.
Trend Themes
1. Alcohol-infused Food and Beverage - The trend of adding alcohol to food and beverage items provides opportunities for both the food and beverage and alcohol industries to collaborate and create unique flavors and experiences.
2. Nostalgia Marketing - Capitalizing on nostalgia, like how Shake Shack did with the Will & Grace spin-off series, can help brands connect with their customers on an emotional level and create stronger customer loyalty.
3. Innovative Dessert Toppings - Creating unique and visually appealing dessert toppings, such as raspberry dust and cinnamon sugar, can set a brand apart and provide opportunities for creative experimentation.
Industry Implications
1. Fast Casual Restaurants - Fast casual restaurants can capitalize on the alcohol-infused food and nostalgia marketing trends by introducing unique menu items that appeal to a sense of familiarity and offer a unique experience.
2. Alcohol Industry - The trend of adding alcohol to food and beverage items provides an opportunity for the alcohol industry to collaborate with food and beverage businesses and expand their customer base through unique and innovative products.
3. Dessert Toppings Industry - Innovative dessert toppings like raspberry dust and cinnamon sugar provide an opportunity for the dessert toppings industry to collaborate with food and beverage businesses and experiment with new flavors and textures.
