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.
Combine the vinegar and simple syrup and stir until it is well mixed.
Fill a glass with ice. Fill the glass half way with the balsamic shrub then top with the club soda and rum. Float the maraschino cherry on top and serve.
