Updated 9/20/11 – The full ingredient list of Ben & Jerry’s Schweddy Balls ice cream is now shown at the bottom of this post.

Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream announced yesterday that “Schweddy Balls” ice cream is on its way to stores around the country. Schweddy Balls is a reference to the popular Saturday Night Live skit featuring Ana Gasteyer, Molly Shannon and guest host, Alec Baldwin. It is a parody on National Public Radio in which the actors continually refer to Pete Schweddy’s (Baldwin) dessert balls.

Rum is hot. Rum is cool. Rum can be sipped, savored, and cooked in ways limited only by your imagination. Rum has an island flavor on its own over ice with a wedge of lime, or it can be something more, as it is in these sophisticated recipes by W. Park Kerr, author of The El Paso Chile Company Margarita Cookbook.

Rumba over to the bar and break out your cocktail shaker and hula-girl glasses. Whether you are looking for a classic rum drink like a pina colada or a mai tai or a new concoction such as a Banana Monkey or a Blue Lagoon, The El Paso Chile Company Rum & Tiki Cookbook offers the ultimate rum recipes in these tropically colorful pages.

Want to add some punch to the rest of your party? Recipes include Luau Baby Back Ribs, Grilled Coconut-Rum Shrimp with Curried Peanut Dipping Sauce, and other spiked suggestions for marinades, sauces, and main dishes. And be sure to save room for dessert. There’s Island Spice Flan and a Pineapple and Bananas Foster. Not sure which type of rum–light, gold, dark, or beyond–to use? It’s all explained in one user-friendly section. So if you don’t want your next party to end up ho-hum, try a little rum.
