Sillywabbitz's confused because of your typo.
KarmaStew's right....you mean macarons
, not macaroons. They are two very different cookies.
To answer your question, I too use the gel colourings. I add a drop to the whites as they are whipping up....at about 75% of their final volume. Doesn't deflate them or anything, works fine. I've heard other people add it to the nut mixture before folding in the whites. I think that would be trickier in the gel format though.
