Hispanic Heritage Month is a time to celebrate and honor the rich cultural contributions of Hispanic and Latinx communities around the world. At Olivia Macaron, a bakery renowned for its exquisite French macarons, the month of September is a special occasion to pay homage to their owner, Ana Claudia Lopez's Mexican heritage. This year, they're doing it in the sweetest way possible – by introducing a delectable array of macaron flavors inspired by Mexico. Join us as we explore the flavors that will make your taste buds dance during this joyous month.
The first flavor on the list is the beloved Mexican Chocolate macaron. Inspired by the traditional Mexican hot chocolate, this delightful treat boasts a rich and velvety chocolate ganache filling infused with a hint of cinnamon and a subtle kick of chili powder. It's a perfect blend of sweet and spicy, just like the heartwarming cups of Mexican hot chocolate that families enjoy together.
Horchata is a beloved beverage across Latin America, and it has a special place in Ana Claudia Lopez's heart. The Horchata macaron captures the essence of this sweet, creamy, and slightly nutty drink. The macaron shells are delicately flavored with cinnamon, while the filling is a heavenly combination of almond and rice milk, with a touch of vanilla. It's a delightful fusion of flavors that pays homage to a beloved Mexican classic.
From the vibrant streets of Mexico to the shores of the Caribbean, the Virgin Mojito macaron brings a refreshing twist to the traditional French treat. This zesty delight features lime-flavored macaron shells, filled with a minty cream that delivers the perfect balance of tart and sweet. Each bite is a burst of citrusy freshness, reminiscent of a cool sip on a warm summer day.
Hibiscus, known as "Jamaica" in Mexico, is a vibrant flower used to make a tart and floral tea. Olivia Macaron's Hibiscus macaron is a beautiful representation of this popular beverage. The macaron shells are infused with the essence of hibiscus, and the filling is a luscious hibiscus ganache. The result is a visually stunning macaron with a unique flavor profile that pays homage to Ana Claudia Lopez's cultural roots.
