To me, it always felt like the drink James Bond should have ordered. It's an elegant, yet relatively simple, cocktail that perfectly balances sweet, sour and flour notes. Beyond that, It's visually compelling, distinguished by its striking violet color.
This recipe is genuinely difficult to mess up. So, not only do you get a simple, hearty meal, you also get to feel fancy and sophisticated for making risotto. The other good thing about this recipe is it’s adaptable.
This recipe is perfect for a quick weeknight meal or weekend gathering with friends. Try pairing it with a Valpolicella Ripasso from Italy or a Beaujolais from France. The sweetness will counter some of the heat and will create balance between the pasta and wine.
