I think this is one of the best turkey breasts I've ever had; it's reportedly part of the Ceia de Natal, or Brazilian Christmas turkey feast. Although a whole turkey is actually used, I just used a turkey breast, about 8 lbs., and used light Puerto Rican rum instead of the traditional Cachaca. It's one of those thing where you keep sneaking into the refrigerator for one more piece... prep time includes marinating overnight.
