What's the difference among rum, sherry, and brandy?
I'm still in high school (quite underage), so I don't know much about liquor.
A few recipes that I'm planning to make this Thanksgiving asks for alcohol (such as the "Creamy Butternut Squash Soup with Sherry" and the "Pear, Brandy, and Walnut Cranberry Sauce"), but I only have aged Zaya Rum in my house. I was wondering whether these recipes would taste fine with rum substituted (or white wine?), or if it'd be better to simply omit the alcohol.
