I have a question about the recipe "Rum Raisin Rice Pudding" from Lizthechef. Can white rum be used in this recipe? If so, would the measurements be the same?

Yes, you can use light (white) rum - use the same amount. The dish will have a slightly lighter color and taste but it will be fine. Bon appetit.

I would add that not all white rums are created equal. Those in the Puerto Rican style (including those from the USVI) are designed to be nearly flavorless. Others, specifically pot-stilled versions, are quite the opposite. Examples of the latter: Jamaican Myers's Platinum, Hawaiian Sammy's Beach Bar.
