How D'you Make a Flavour Like... Elderflower Soda?

You know we're all about that all natural, never from concentrate life, which means our seasonal smasher Elderflower Soda is no different, Fizz Fam!
Whilst we enlisted the help of Foraging Legend and Pop Pal, John the Poacher, to source most of our Elderflower, the gang here at Square Root HQ had a go at that #cottagecore fun and scouted the marshes of East London to pick elderflower. What did we learn from this?
1. Hemlock and cow parsley look strikingly similar to Elderflower but think of them as the poisonous sisters. Eat them and well, it won't end well for you.
2. Foraging takes precision, skill and it extremely rewarding.
3. Square Root team members can be a tad too competitive when there's a prize at stake to whoever picks the most elderflower.
Want to see the fun we had? Ofc, you do! Check out the photos below.

Unfortunately, the creamiest elderflower buds were situated on the highest points of the tree. Being tall definitely has its advantages, and being able to nab the best elderflower to make banging soda is one of them!
