Blackberry Shrub Lemonade
For the Blackberry Shrub Syrup:
2 cups blackberries
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
For the Blackberry Shrub Lemonade:
1 oz blackberry shrub syrup
2 oz rum (omit for a kid-friendly lemonade)
Make the Blackberry Shrub Syrup:
In a medium bowl, combine the blackberries and sugar and mash using a large spoon, muddler, or potato masher. Let it sit at room temperature for about 2 hours or tightly covered in the refrigerator overnight. Press the blackberry juice through a fine sieve over a bowl, really taking the time to press every bit of juice from the berries. Stir in the white balsamic vinegar, pour into a sterilized glass jar and store in the refrigerator. This should keep for up to a month.
Make the Blackberry Shrub Lemonade:
Pour the syrup and rum (omit if making a kid-friendly beverage) into a glass, top with sparking lemonade and ice. Enjoy.
