Lemon rice pudding with gin syrup

Rice pudding can sometimes be a little cloying, but here it is lightened by sharp spikes of lemon.

Ingredients

700ml full-fat milk
3⁄4 cup risotto or short grain rice
2 lemons
6 tablespoons caster sugar
4 tablespoons floral gin (I used Bombay Sapphire – add a little extra if you want a more pronounced flavour)
3 tablespoons toasted slivered almonds to serve
