Which Type Of Rum Goes Best With Eggnog?

‘Tis the season to fill your cup with the season’s classic boozy dairy drink. It’s eggnog season, everybody.

If you’re a fan of the holiday drink you know that it’s the booze that makes the beverage. When mixing you might want to know which type of rum goes best with eggnog. Because it’s important to make the absolute best version of eggnog that there could ever be. This is especially important if you want to sway the eggnog haters towards the light side.

At its base, the beverage is a sweet and merry concoction of cream, milk, eggs and sugar.

If you’re not exactly a fan just yet but you’re looking to give eggnog a brave try this winter, rest assured that the alcohol will help take the edge off by giving it an edge. Just be sure to know what the best rum to use is.

The Spruce conducted a taste test resulting in a gold or aged rum as the perfect fit with eggnog’s flavor. You would ~think~ that spiced rum would blend perfectly into a holiday drink. Isn’t everything around this time of the year better stuffed with spices? Yes, but not when it comes to this kind of drink.

On the contrary, if you go too light with your liquor, the rum will get lost in every sip.
