It’s Friday and it is time for cocktails, am I right? In my case it is time for several cocktails because yesterday marked the biggest challenge this blog has ever faced. You might have noticed it looks a little different and is acting a little erratically… Well this is because Supergolden Bakes is now on WordPress instead of Blogger. While this might not seem major to you it is a HUGE change for me and I don’t deal well with change. I fret, I worry, I stress and then I worry some more. I could make the Olympic worry team, I am that good at it.
Despite having help on tap from a hugely patient tech guru, you might still come across some dreaded error messages. Please be patient – the posts are there but sometimes they need a little search to locate them. Enter the name of the recipe into the search box and it should come up. I am also slowly updating the recipes into printer friendly format and making a host of other improvements to make the blog more user friendly. If you spot anything that requires my attention leave a comment, send me a tweet or a Facebook message and I will look into it straight away.
In the meantime why not make a batch of Pisco Sours to celebrate the end of the week? They might be my all time favourite cocktail – so much complexity in a drink that requires few ingredients. You will need to get hold of some Pisco* for this drink and perhaps my favourite gadget of all time, the gloriously named Mexican Elbow. I like to add a touch of Marsala wine for a little added sweetness. And of course don’t forget the drops of Angostura Bitters on top of the frothy head. Kinda look like vampire bites, don’t they? Maybe this should be a Halloween cocktail 😉
