'Emily In Paris' Has All Eyes On This CocktailGetty Images

With the return of Emily in Paris, fans of the Netflix series have found a new thing to swoon over. And no, it's not a handsome love interest. Emily in Paris viewers have been won over by the Kir Royale cocktail.

This season, Emily and friends were spotted with the ruby-hued cocktail during a scene that took place below the Ferris wheel at the Place de la Concorde, a public square in Paris.

Popular in France, the Kir Royale is a two-ingredient cocktail made with Creme de Cassis (black currant liqueur) and Champagne. To whip up a Kir Royale, simply pour Creme de Cassis in a champagne flute and top with the bubbly of your choice.

People of course had some hot takes given the sudden interest in the cocktail. One user on Twitter believes it might even be possible for the Kir Royale to tear people away from the Aperol Sprtiz, a drink that became even more popular thanks to the Sicily-set second season of The White Lotus.

"Watch how Paris is going to be full of tourists drinking Kir Royale next summer. Aperol Spiritz [sic], out! I also suspect this ugly beret will be everywhere. And bring your Lysol wipes if you’re going to ride the Grande Roue," @Loic_Bourdeau tweeted.

Some predict that the Kir Royale may also replace the Negroni Sbgliato (with Prosecco), which was made popular after House of the Dragon star Emma D'Arcy revealed that it's their drink of choice.
