Full Answer

Rum typically has an alcohol proof of 80, which means it contains 40 percent alcohol. Captain Morgan manufactures a 100-proof spiced rum, which has an alcohol content of 50 percent. Liquor with an alcohol proof of 84 usually freezes at -30 F, while liquor with a proof of 24 freezes at 20 F. The higher the alcohol proof, the lower the freezing temperature of the liquor.
