Whiskey is a strong, sharp liquor that will add some serious heat to your eggnog, cutting out some of the sweetness but still not overpowering the nog. Adding whiskey to your eggnog will give you a bit of a slap in the face – the alcohol will taste strong and will not be as masked as other liquors.

Whiskeys are great for eggnog, from bourbon to rye (via The Manual). If you're not the whiskey type, go for some dark rum or brandy. The high alcohol content will balance some of the sweetness, but don't waste your best scotch on a drink this sweet and creamy.

According to our friends at Coastal Living, the perfect alcohol-to-eggnog ratio is 1:5 (1 part spirit, 5 parts eggnog). If you buy a 1-quart container of eggnog, add 6.5 ounces of liquor. It’s really that simple.

While there isn't a specific brand or type of alcohol that's deemed as the overall best alcohol for eggnog, there are a few kinds of alcohol that are much better than others for this type of situation.

While brandy is the most traditional add-in for eggnog, according to traditional recipes, the experts at Bottles recommend a mixture of dark rum and Cognac. If you like your eggnog a little more boozy, you can also add bourbon, though Bottles recommends sticking to rum and Cognac to preserve the 'nog's flavors. Click to see full answer

It has that fiery kick at the end that gels just perfectly with the smooth, creamy thickness of the eggnog. However, if you don't like the flavor of cinnamon-spiced whiskey in general, you won't...

Try vanilla vodka or a homemade infusion with some seasonal spice like cinnamon or ginger. Most eggnog recipes can work with any of the three common spirits. Once you discover your personal preference, try it in another version of eggnog alongside the liquor the recipe recommends. Most importantly, have fun with your eggnog taste test.
