Elderflower and Passionfruit Cooler

Nigella Lawson's Elderflower and Passionfruit Cooler

This is the perfect drink to have by the pitcherful for summer lunches in the garden: easy to make, easier still to drink.

For how many? Serves 6


  • elderflower cordial
  • fizzy water
  • 3-4 passionfruit (strained if preferred)
  • ice cubes
  • sprigs fresh mint


In a large glass jug, pour about one-third elderflower cordial to two-thirds fizzy water.

Add the pulp and seeds of the passionfruit (or strain them if you prefer this pipless) and then chunk up with ice cubes, adding a few sprigs of fresh mint if you have any to hand.
