Not really.

On a side note however .. low grade ta-kill-ya for cooking is pretty cheap and useful in many marinade recipes so I'd say just splurge and buy a pint.

IMHO "go for the gold" aka buy the "gold" ta-kill-ya for cooking if they have a cheapo brand available, the flavor holds up better .. again IMHO

You CAN use rum, but honestly, tequila has such a unique taste I don't know what would sub well that is non-alcoholic. Maybe just add some more citrus (lemon or lime juice) instead. But it won't be "tequila lime marinade" for sure!

Apparently, you can make a non-alcoholic tequila sub at home using agave nectar. I just Googled "tequila flavor extract" (without the quotes) and found a recipe at www.frozen-drink-recipies dot com. The recipe is in the notes at the bottom of the page.

OOoo, well for sure you don't want that to happen! Ditch that thought to use rum then - sending him good thoughts and wishes for a speedy move up that list!
