Winter is coming … And the chill is palpable at Shake Shack, 220 E. Buffalo St., where they’ve been laboring ceaselessly to prepare for the impending darkness.

Beginning today (Friday, April 12), guests are invited to enjoy the fruits of their labor: the Dragonglass Shake.

In keeping with Rholītso Rhakion's (Shake Shack’s) commitment to premium ingredients + thoughtful sourcing, Zīrtom Perzomy Rholītsos (the Dragonglass Shake) is a prime example of the Wall to Table movement.

Custard is frozen with packed snow harvested beyond the Wall and hand churned by members of the Night’s Watch. Final prep occurs in Winterfell, where the shake is topped with shards of Dragonglass imported from the caves of Dragonstone. Please note supplies are limited as the Wall is currently undergoing major renovations.

The limited edition concoction features a combination of white chocolate and mint topped with black toffee and served up in a dishwasher safe reusable cup with a compostable straw ($6.49).

For best results, order the shake using your best Valyrian tongue: "Rytsas, jaelan Zīrtom Perzomy Rholītsos. ("Hello, I would like a Dragonglass Shake.") and enjoy during the final season of "Game of Thrones," which premieres Sunday on HBO.
