A macaron flavored with fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil

The theme for Mixers' Club was "duets" - taking two existing recipes and making them sing together. I wanted to try to marry my macaron base from my Mango Blossom Macaron to the best recipe to come out of last year's DIYorDIE world mixing competition, the heavenly three-ingredient "In a Godda Da Vida" by the incomparable @mlNikon. The earliest versions were disastrous. TFA Papaya and FA Pomegranate and not to be trifled with. It took turning them down further and further and even adjusting the ratio a bit to get Godda to fit into a light and airy meringue and almond flour cookie with an ingratiating touch of forbidden fruit flavor.

I enjoyed this every bit as much as I did the two recipes that it draws from. Pomegranate is a bit of a bully, but the rest of the flavors balance it out nicely. I can even still pick out the tangerine, and for my palate that's usually the first thing to disappear when I start layering heavier flavors on top of it. This is very nicely done, and exactly what I was hoping I'd get from the blending of these two awesome recipes.
