Coconut Orange Macaroons

I decided that my Coconut Macaroons should have a hint of citrus to it. I think the orange flavor especially, compliments  the taste of coconut and chocolate really well. So for this recipe, I added not only the zest of an orange, but also the juice. This is an optional addition and the recipe will work just fine if you prefer the traditional coconut macaroon flavor.
