John's Gin Marinade

Recipe by  

"This is my step-dad's recipe, which is incredible with beef tenderloin steaks or even less expensive cuts of meat like flank steak. The best part is, you can use it as a basting sauce while grilling."

I loved it. It has a "just right" taste. I used maple syrup instead of sugar .....same thing...yummy. I used it for chicken wings. Thanks. This time, I didn't have gin & used Tequila, and sugar and again...fantastic. Thanks again John, it's my go-to.
