A European all-rounder
Elderflower, Holunderblüte, has place in Germany's heart not only due to its many culinary uses but also its wide-use in natural medicine. From fizzy drinks to herbal tinctures, Germans put the plant to good use. In Sweden, it's made into a summer drink called the Fläderblomsaft. In Romania there is a Fanta Shokata, an electric blue elderflower twist on the iconic orange soda.
