Socată[1] or suc de soc is a traditional Romanian soft drink made from the flowers of the European elder (or elderberry) shrub, Sambucus nigra (soc in Romanian). The European elderberry (sometimes called common elder) also grows spontaneously in North America.

In Romania, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, India, and some other countries, there is "Fanta Shokata" based on the Socată.
