Should you want to use alcohol to soak fruit, use an orange flavoured one such as Cointreau.
You can substitute the verjuice for white wine.
As the liquid is predominantly orange juice, the acidity may cause the rice to take a little longer to cook. You can change quantities to 400ml orange juice and 200ml water.
If you use figs, remember it may be the fig seeds that seem crunchy rather than the rice.
