This is a subtly sweet and creamy risotto, perfect for a Meatless Monday or a counterpoint to any duck or game dishes. It’s from my 2003 cookbook Aquavit: And the New Scandinavian Cuisine.

Citrus-Infused Vodka Recipe

This weekend try your hand at an old Swedish tradition: Aquavit.  My recipe for Citrus-Infused Vodka combines the bounty of winter fruit for a delicious, homemade spirit.  Combine with seltzer for a quick cocktail after it’s finished steeping.  It’s also delicious on the rocks with a wedge of any of the fruits.  While the flavors infuse, I leave the jar in the middle of my table for a striking and colorful centerpiece.
