Leftover rice is a perfect blank canvas for TONS of fantastic dishes. Pineapple and bourbon make this simple rice pudding a bit more interesting. If you’re a fan of bourbon, try pouring an additional half (or full) shot on top of the pudding just before serving. Lots of people prefer their rice pudding cold, but this one seems to really shine, warm or room temperature.
