Drunken Duck Marinade
Threw this one together over the weekend after wife bought some Pomegranate Liqueur for some specialty cocktail:

2 parts Pomegranate Liqueur
1 part scotch (I'm guessing cognac would be better, but I didn't have any handy)
1 part Triple Sec
1 part Balsamic Vinegar

I soaked two sets of Spoonbill breasts in this for about an hour, then grilled over hot charcoal to Rare/Med Rare. I was blown away by the residual flavor of the boozes. There was one shot channel that seemed to have collected a bit of scotch directly, but other than that, the flavor imparted was a complex fruit flavor which proved rich and left the breasts with an excellent texture and mouth feel.

Paired with a Claret and served with fresh cut green beans.
When things are good in my life, ducks fly in my dreams. When things are bad, they don't.

My grandfather was right, if you ever want to taste a great duck, don't make it sober. Cool
