We could hardly wait to bring you these spirituous macarons inspired by our Vintage Summer Editorial and Vintage Cocktail recipes! Think booze infused buttercreams, cherries soaked in bitters, and more! 

When Bar and Garden Dallas (a speciality liquor, wine, and plant store) opened this February, we fell in love with the interior design of the store and the people behind the magic.  After several Saturday walks to pickup some of our new favorite gins, bitters, Malbecs, and sparkling rosés, we finally worked up the nerve to ask if they were interested in a macaron collab? They said yes!!! So here we have it – our first of hopefully many Bar & Garden x WE THE BIRDS Macarons collaborations.

The Old Fashioned

the OG cocktail, circa 1800s
  • 2 oz. bourbon, Kings County Bourbon Whiskey (found at Bar & Garden Dallas)
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 1 sugar cube or 1/2 tsp fine sugar
  • Splash of water
  • Garnish, orange twist and cocktail cherry

Place sugar cube in old fashioned glass and saturate with bitters and a dash of water. Muddle until dissolved. Rotate the glass so the sugar bitters line the glass. Add a large ice cube and pour in the bourbon. Stir and garnish with an orange slice and cocktail cherry.

Macaron flavor notes: Orange zest shell with King's County bourbon buttercream and bitters infused cherry center. Garnished with a candied orange peel.

Blue Moon Cocktail

We the Birds

Sisters, Sarah + Natalie Knowlton, are the founders of WE THE BIRDS — a lifestyle brand and luxury French macaron bakery. We grew up all over the world, moving over 17 times and living in many countries including: Singapore, Australia, Venezuela, Cambodia, Thailand, France and of course, the US of A.  Our personal style and global perspective is a reflection of our transient upbringing. 

Now based in Dallas, TX, we established WE THE BIRDS through a shared love of fashion, design, travel and French macarons. What started as a creative outlet for two sisters, has blossomed into a multi-faceted business. Sarah’s professional background (with industry experience in fashion, design, & photography) combined with Natalie’s culinary prowess and professional business experience sets us apart from our competitors and makes us a uniquely dynamic duo.
