How to make champagne macarons 

What you need to make strawberry champagne macarons

  • 1 batch macarons shells
  • Champagne ganache
  • Strawberry confiture

For macarons shells please check here . I have also online video lesson how to make macaron shells NO REST method.

First step is to reduce the champagne. This will give a concentrated champagne taste and will evaporate the alcohol of the champagne. These champagne macarons are safe for kids to consume. 

How to make champagne reduction

In a small saucepan, bring champagne to a boil over medium heat. Once boiling, reduce to low heat and allow to simmer until reduced to 1/2 cup. This will take about 5- 10 minutes.

Tip from Marina: add hot water to chocolate if you end up with less champagne reduction than recipe calls

How to make Champagne ganache

Place white chocolate into tall plastic glass. Immediately pour hot champagne reduction over white chocolate. Let it sit for about 1 minute. Emulsify with hand blender. Transfer ganache into flat container and cover with plastic wrap to contact. Refrigerate for 5-6 hours. 

How to make strawberry confiture

You can use store bought strawberry puree or make your own. Please check post how to make fruit puree here

In a small the saucepan, cook strawberry puree over medium heat until reaches 40 C (104F). Mix granulated sugar and pectin NH and add it into the strawberry puree. Cook for 2 minutes, then add pinch of citric acid and mix well. Remove strawberry confiture from heat. Transfer into pipping bag and let cool slightly on the countertop. Once cooled to room temperature, refrigerate it for a few hours (or overnight). 

How to assemble Strawberry Champagne macarons 

Place champagne ganache into pipping bag with a round pipping tip. Pipe some ganache on the bottom shell. Pipe strawberry confiture in the middle of ganache. Top macaron with another shell. Place macarons into airtight container and refrigerate for 24 hours to mature.

After macarons matured in the refrigerator, I decorated them. I mixed a few drops of vodka with gold dust and, brushed on top of the shells. Macarons looked so festive and rich. 

Tip from Marina: mix gold dust with vodka or other alcohol, because water might damage the shells, whereas the alcohol will evaporate.
