Rumplemintz Alcohol Content, calories, serving temperature and taste

Rumple Minze peppermint liquor has a peppermint schnapps taste and the refined relish of candy cane. The liquor even though RumpleMintz Alcohol Content is quite high at an alcoholic content of 50% ABV (100-proof), it has an exceptionally smooth taste given the high alcohol content by volume.

The high ABV liqueur is best served in a chilled shot glass for a refreshing tasting kick but some people serve it straight up (in some cases as a digestif) or is mixed with other distilled liquors to form various cocktails. It is stronger than most liqueurs in terms of alcohol content.

The liquor was introduced in the early 2000s as a drink that offers a strong relish to the tongue and minty sustenance. You will love the taste and smell that it delivers with every sip of Rumplemintz . 

Rumplemintz proof of alcohol

The proof of an alcoholic drink is twice the alcohol (ethanol) content by volume. Thus, similar to ABV, the proof is a measure of the ethanol (alcohol) content in an alcoholic drink. This means that a wine with a 15% ABV has 30-proof of alcohol.

Using this definition, Rumplemintz has 100 proof of alcohol which is 50% alcohol content by volume. This means that Rumplemintz alcohol content is higher compared to other distilled liquors.

Most of the other distilled liquors have 80-proof of alcohol. Because of the higher alcohol content and the strong candy cane in addition to the peppermint taste, the drink is a favorite for party shots, cocktails, and also as a digestif.

Alcohol in a Rumplemintz shot

As discussed above, Rumplemintz is a high-proof distilled liqueur that has 50% ABV which is 100-proof of alcohol. However, how much alcohol is in a Rumplemintz shot?

A shot contains 1.5 oz of fluid in this case Rumplemintz. With 50% ABV, a standard (1.5 oz.) shot of Rumplemintz contains 0.75 oz. of alcohol which is 22.2 ml of ethanol.

A two-fluid-ounce shot will give you one ounce (29.6 ml) of ethanol (alcohol) while a one-fluid-ounce shot will give you half an ounce (14.8 ml) of ethanol.

In grams, a standard Rumplemintz shot (1.5 oz.) of Rumplemintz contains 17.4 grams of alcohol. On the other hand, a 2-ounce shot of Rumplemintz will give you 23.2 grams of ethanol.

All this makes it stronger than most other liqueurs. This is less however than the alcohol content in Everclear 190 which contains almost 1.43 ounces of ethanol per standard 1.5 fluid ounces shot.

Rumplemintz calories per shot?

This distilled liquor is one of the highest in terms of calories per shot. It has a high alcohol content in addition to carbs per shot.

This means that a shot (1.5 oz.) of Rumplemintz will give you 172 calories. The calories will vary if you use a bigger or smaller shot size for your drinks. A three (3) ounce shot glass of Rumplemintz will give you 344 calories, while a two-ounce shot of Rumplemintz will give you 229 calories.

Pairing Rumplemintz

Rumplemintz production has used the inspiration from centuries of tradition in crafting intensely flavored, high-proof spirits. This particular distilled liquor is a favorite ingredient in winter and holiday cocktails because of the high RumpleMintz Alcohol Content.

Of course due to the RumpleMintz Alcohol Content, it is famous for shots and daring cocktails which are best served chilled. This is because the 100-proof peppermint-flavored liqueur makes your holiday enjoyable but is best enjoyed in the company of friends or relatives.

To get the chilled state, refrigerate the Rumplemintz bottle for two hours before the party starts. 

You can often pair it with chocolate and other dessert-worthy flavors. You can mix it with Dr. Pepper soda to make a Dr. Peppermint cocktail at a ratio of 1: 12.
