Grilled Spicy Rum Wings

Serves 4-6

If you like wings, your gathering NEEDS these spicy rum wings!


  • 3/4 c. Dark Rum
  • 3 tbsp. Fresh Lime Juice, plus wedges for serving
  • 3 tbsp. Soy Sauce
  • 3 tbsp. Packed Brown Sugar
  • 2 tbsp. Litehouse® Freeze Dried Garlic
  • 3 Scallions, finely chopped, plus more for topping
  • 1 to 2 Serrano Peppers, seeded and minced
  • 2 tbsp. Litehouse® Freeze Dried Ginger
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Ground Allspice
  • Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 12 Jumbo Chicken Wings
  • Litehouse® Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing, for serving


  1. Prepare the marinade by combining the rum, lime juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, scallions, serranos, ginger, allspice, 2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl.
  2. Rinse the wings and place them in a resealable plastic bag and add the marinade.
  3. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly, then turn the bag over to completely coat the wings. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight, turning the bag once or twice.
  4. Drain the wings, reserving the marinade. Bring the marinade to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook until reduced by about half, about 5 minutes.
  5. Heat your grill to medium-high heat. Place the wings on the grill and cover with the lid and cook until the juices run clear, 30 to 45 minutes.
  6. Brush the wings with the reserved marinade/sauce 1-2 times on each side throughout the cooking process.
  7. Remove the wings from the grill and top with chopped scallions and serve with lime wedges.
