Cooking liquids for rice

What could I add to the water when cooking rice, apart from stock? Any suggestions?

Tomato juice. A little wine, some herbs maybe? Your imagination is the limit.

No water? And when do you add the raisins, at the end?

Add the raisins at the beginning. This results in rice pudding.

I leave out the raisins and use cut up dried apricots. Love rice pudding!
