Glossary of Macarons Cocktail

When contemplating what cocktail to make this month, I had a light bulb moment: a Glossary of Macarons Cocktail, of course! Could there be anything more fitting for Sugar & Cloth than a macaron cocktail? Just take a peek around here or on Ash’s hashtag on IG (#glossaryofmacs), and you’ll get an idea of her obsession with the tasty baked goods. And I,

And I, Ashley Conway, can’t blame her one bit! Walking into a macaron shop is like stepping foot into a colorful jewelry store. They look like little edible jewels all lined up in the case like a rainbow of colors. They’re so delicious and so light, it’s easy to have a bunch in one sitting (not that I am speaking from experience or anything…). And so are these cocktails! The Glossary of Macrons Cocktails are going to be your new happy hour or brunch go-to tipple.

And just like macarons, these cocktails are just as easy to drink! These Glossary of Macarons Cocktails are going to be your new happy hour or brunch go-to…

Glossary of Macarons Cocktail

Ingredients

Lavender syrup

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 tablespoons food grade dried lavender

Rose syrup

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup food grade dried rose buds

Passion fruit syrup

  • 1 cup water
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup passion fruit pulp or juice

Cocktail Recipe

  • 1 3/4 ounces aged rum
  • 1 ounce cream
  • 1/2 ounce orange vanilla liqueur like Licor 43 or Tuaca
  • 1/2 ounce flavored syrup of your choice (lavender, rose, or passion)
  • 1/4 ounce orgeat almond syrup
  • garnish: macaron

Instructions

  • Heat sugar and water in a sauce pan over medium heat until sugar melts. Add the lavender, rose, or passion fruit pulp. Let cool and steep for a few hours.
  • Strain through fine mesh strainer. Store in a sealed container in the fridge for a few weeks.
  • Make the syrup of your choice. Add all the liquid ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with macaron. 


These are creamy cocktails with hints of vanilla, almond, and spices. There are three different syrups you can choose from so technically there are three different cocktails you can make with this recipe.

I picked flavors for the cocktails to match popular macaron flavors: lavender, rose, and passion fruit. Along with flavored syrups, I used an orgeat syrup. Orgeat is an almond-based syrup usually used in tiki cocktails.

Since macarons are made from almond flour. I felt it was the perfect thing to add into the mix. It also goes well in many other drinks so once you grab a bottle of orgeat (or make it on your own) put it to use and experiment with it in cocktails and desserts.

As for the orange vanilla liqueur, there are a few on the market, my favorite is Licor 43, but Tuaca is also good too if you can source that easier. The cocktail is then topped off with a macaron garnish so you can eat your macron and drink it too!

So, which glossary of macarons cocktail is your favorite? I am thinking of trying a salted caramel (my favorite!) macaron cocktail next!
