Crisp, Floral, and Fruity

Rose-lychee Macaron

I suggest that you don’t confuse these with the regular rose macarons at Bizu.  Because, apart from the sprinkling of pink sugar scattered on top, this one actually has a fruity twist to it: there’s lychee puree in the creme patisserie holding these macs together.  😀

Because the natural taste of lychees is already akin to that of jasmine touched with a hint of lime blossom, it’s a natural counterpoint to the strongly floral note of the rose essence used to flavor these classic almond biscuit sandwiches.

I like to think of these as a perfectly elegant little snack to go with a pot of rosebud infusion on a rainy day.  🙂
