I didn't cut the booze and made it exactly as written. Found, I couldn't serve it to anyone younger than 21....legally. In retrospect, I should have known that a pony of Grand Marnier is more than most cocktails would contain and that the pudding would be, shall we say....stout? Grand Marnier doesn't come cheap and it feels as if I wasted great mixed drink endeavors or fabulous future dessert for 10 with this oversight. I wouldn't make it again without an overhaul.
Orange Liqueur Rice Pudding
Arborio rice, the traditional rice for risotto, releases starch as it cooks, yielding a creamy, orange-scented rice pudding. Serve warm or chilled. If you don't have Grand Marnier, substitute Cointreau.
