Cherry Vanilla Balsamic Shrub Recipe

Not all shrubs are light and airy. This recipe is for a heavy shrub that packs a wallop with strong vanilla and balsamic flavors, in addition to the molasses notes from the brown sugar. You can serve it with a splash of club soda and I really like a shot of dark rum with it. I call for a maraschino cherry to use as garnish and I highly recommend a Luxardo or other high quality cherry instead of the bright red grocery store cherries common in America.
