I hear the other kind makes you blind.

You can use any that you like but brandy is usually used in a English style eggnog and rum is used in a American Colonial style eggnog while bourbon is used in a Revolutionary style eggnog. Basically they used the cheapest stuff they could find. :) I don't recomend you do the same if it is for a party. Unless you don't like the guests.

Use a lighter rum then you would for a Planters Punch if you like the flavor of rum.

My first choice is rum (good rum like Gosling’s Black Seal, not the lightly molasses flavored grain alcohol that gets passed off as rum in some parts), second choice is brandy (usually Metaxa because that’s what I usually have handy).

I realize there are bourbon partisans, but I regard the proper ways of drinking bourbon as: straight, in a mint julep, or in a hot toddy.

I also use Bailey’s Irish Cream Coffeemate as a mixer.
Take 3 ounces out of a pint container and add 2 ounces of vodka and 1 ounce of Irish whiskey. I can’t tell the difference from the real deal.

If you are making 1 gallon of egg nog

2 cups Brandy

1 Cup Dark Rum

1 cup rye whiskey

1/2 cup dry sherry

This can be cut in half or in quarters if you are making less egg nog

Do NOT forget to use nutmeg. On top. Or all through it.

Egg nogg is shy a couple of ‘g’s without nutmeg. Seriously. Fresh grated, all the better.

Take 10 oz. of eggnog, pour it in a cup. Pour 6 oz. of premium whiskey into another cup. Pour cup of eggnog down the drain whole pouring the whiskey down your throat. Repeat until completely soused.

Why waste good alcohol by putting it in eggnog? That said, I would vote for Mt. Gay Barbados Rum. For those who have dairy issues, Rice Dream comes in eggnog flavor. I make oatmeal with it!

Southern Ohio Eggnog Recipe.

Get two Eggs and Three Nogs and a bottle of Jack Daniels.

Mix the eggs and the nogs together thoroughly and place them in a glass container in the refrigerator.

Chill a glass tumbler in the Freezer for ten minutes add Ice Cubes and two shots of Jack Daniels and sip quietly while contemplating what to do with useless Eggnog in the refrigerator.

(Why waste perfectly good Alcohol by adding eggnog?)

I'm kind of fond of Makers' Mark, good ole Kentucky sour mash. I also like Evan Williams or Ezra Brooks. A good Tennessee sippin' whiskey, such as Gentleman Jack hits the spot, too.

My final suggestion is to try all the suggestions here and those by others as well. Just don't be driving or operating any kind of machinery!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
