After a week off, the hardest working beefcakes in the drinks business slide back into the Pod saddle, digging their heels into some hard-nosed aural journalism and whipping up some searing investigative insight – namely the return of bananas to the UK in 1945 and. of course, National Pig Day (only America).

Pigs in Blanket Old Fashioned
12 pigs in blanket
70cl of Pork fat-washed whisky
5ml Maple syrup

· Once the fat has congealed in the bottle, strain the bourbon into a new bottle.

While you’re waiting for the pig fat to steep in the whisky, here’s a video about pigs that play video games.
