The love series ‘Emily in Paris’ on Netflix follows Emily Cooper, a Chicago-based marketing expert who moves to Paris to work as the American voice for the French marketing firm Savoir. Savoir is closed down in the show’s third season after Sylvie, Julien, and Luc quit and create another company. Even though Emily joins Sylvie’s company, Sylvie dismisses her for failing to resign from Savoir, leaving her jobless.
Nonetheless, she continues to come up with amazing and unique ideas. Emily suggests Chamère after meeting Camille’s parents, Gerard and Louise. Since the couple introduces Chamère as a new product of their winery, Le Domaine de Latisse, viewers must be curious whether it is a genuine drink. So, here’s what we have to say about it!
Is Chamère a Genuine Drink?
Chamère is essentially a bottle or can of Kir Royale. The Kir Royale is a well-known wine drink in France. It is a luxury variant of Kir, a blend of white wine and berry-based liqueur. Even though Le Domaine de Latisse is a fictitious winery and Chamère is a fictitious product, Kir Royale and Kir are immensely famous in France.
Emily’s notion to can or bottle the drink, on the other hand, is linked to the traditional French manner of largely preparing the cocktail independently rather than relying on cocktail bottles. Emily’s preoccupation with canned or bottled food or drinks as an American inspires Louise and Gerard to create and release Chamère.
How is Chamère Produced?
The primary goal of Chamère is to either can or bottle Kir Royale. The cocktail is prepared with Champagne, the sparkling wine that originated and is produced in the eponymous region where Le Domaine de Lalisse is located in the show, and crème de cassis, a dark red tinted liqueur made with blackcurrants.
Meanwhile, crème de cassis and white wine combine to make a Kir. Champagne is a high-end type of wine. Thus Kir prepared it is referred to as “Royale.” Champagne is poured into the glass after crème de cassis is added to the bottom to make the cocktail.
A Kir is created with 9 centiliters or parts of white wine and 1 centiliter or part of crème de cassis, according to the International Bartenders Association (IBA).
One centilitre of crème de cassis can be mixed with nine centilitres of Champagne to create the Kir Royale. Although crème de cassis is the traditional ingredient in Kir Royale, any berry-based liqueur or crème de framboise can also be used, depending on personal choice.
