Square Root sodas are all made from fresh ingredients, juiced or infused by hand. Using locally sourced, seasonal ingredients wherever possible and, as the fruit juice they use is fresh, their sodas contain little added sugar and retain their natural fruit flavour. The lemonade is one of their year round offerings and we can confirm it is delicious. They recently won the drinks category of  BBC’s Food and Farming awards and they also get a special gold star from Club Soda!


Galvanina Lemon Sparkling Organic Fruit Drink

This comes from an old family recipe, it’s almost the opposite of Square Root and Dalston Colas’ local offerings, as it comes from Italy. Using Italian mineral water and organic Sicilian lemons this gently sparkling drink has a pleasant sherbety flavour. It also comes in a really nice glass bottle which you can upcycle into a glass if you feel so inclined.
