What is a Rumogg?

A Rumogg is a rum cocktail that tastes like eggnog without using eggnog. It has a silky smooth texture with a nice spiced rum and cinnamon kick.


Spiced rum is the ideal liquor to go with eggnog flavored drinks. It has the perfect balance of sweet and spice that mixes with that smooth texture to make it easy drinking. This cocktail brings that eggnog flavor with a smoother and lighter feel since it doesn’t carry the heavy thick eggnog in it.

The Olive Twist

This Rumogg cocktail is very simple and let’s the texture of the egg and the flavors of the rum shine. You can top off with some nutmeg and cinnamon to bring a little more of that eggnog flavor. Swapping out the rum for some Brandy or Bourbon can add a little more kick and less sweetness that the rum brings.
