I made a marinade based on the ingredients in Reflection Man. Orange juice, lemon juice (combined to create a neroli-ish flavor) orange zest, cardamom, allspice (for that 'red pepper berry' note, which I am convinced actually IS allspice. The nutmeg was to combine with the orange juice and zest to give it a bit of woodiness to simulate the petitgrain note), rosemary, and a hint of a vanilla extract.
It actually turned out quite well!
