Can I map a unicast packet to a multicast address?

I am looking to have a unicast packet received on an interface sent out as a multicast
packet on two outgoing tunnels. This is on a Cisco 75xx series router, so I don't believe

multicast service reflection is supported on it.

I looked at NAT based on the example in the following link:

   This example will work for a single outgoing interface. However, it looks like the NAT translation rule is
applied on the outgoing interface. In our example where the packet would have to be sent out on two
tunnels, this will not work.

   If anyone has suggestions on how to achieve the mapping from unicast to multicast on two

outgoing tunnels, please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Rasikan David.
