Just the right amount of Kavana Silver makes this marinade really shine.


  • 3 oz. Kavana Silver Rum
  • 2 Tablespoons Garlic, Chopped (Fresh or Jarred)
  • 1 Cup Fresh Orange Juice
  • ¼ Cup Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 Small Jalapeño Pepper, Chopped (optional)
  • ¼ Cup Olive Oil
  • 2 Teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 ½ Teaspoons Black Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano1 ½ Teaspoons Fresh Cilantro, Chopped
  • Fresh Mint Leaves To Taste


Mix together the garlic, orange juice, and lime juice in a bowl. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan until just smoking.

CAUTION: slide the contents of the bowl into the hot oil.

Simmer for 5 minutes to soften the garlic. Season the marinade with the rest of the ingredients. Pour everything into a blender (remove lid for hot air to release) or food processor and pulse 3 times to blend. Another alternative to use is an immersion blender. Whichever method you use, please use caution with the hot liquids.

Pour into a glass container and cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate. The marinade keeps for up to 2 weeks, and is great for chicken, shrimp, skirt steak, and even tofu as a vegan option.
