Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shallot and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the water, syrup, salt and cinnamon. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Add the carrots and reduce the heat to simmer, stirring occasionally.
Cover and simmer for 4 to 6 minutes or until the carrots are crisp-tender. Remove the lid and stir in the vinegar. Increase the heat to medium-high and continue cooking for 3 to 5 minutes, until the liquid has thickened and the carrots are coated.
