Kick things off by whisking together the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Set this bowl aside for now.
Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer + large bowl), cream together the butter, 1/2 cup of granulated sugar, and light brown sugar until fluffy.
Drop mixer speed to low and blend in the egg, eggnog, and the vanilla and rum extracts.
Add the dry ingredients to the batter, then mix until a firm dough forms.
Add the remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar to a small bowl. Use a cookie scoop to scoop up some dough, roll it into a ball, then coat it in the sugar. Once done, send them off to bake!
