Leelanau Lemon Aid

Traverse Magazine‘s food and drink editor, Tim Tebeau, offers this recipe for Leelanau Lemon Aid, a refreshing gin-based and fruit-ridden cocktail that’ll help shake up the rest of the summer.



  • 2 whole lemons, sliced
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 ounces Cointreau
  • 2 ounces Northern Latitudes Limoncello di Leelanau
  • 12 ounces Northern Latitudes Jack Pine Gin
  • Club soda


In a pitcher, muddle the lemon slices, sugar and Cointreau until the sugar is dissolved. Add the Limoncello and gin, stir to combine and strain into ice-filled rocks glasses. Top with club soda and garnish with lemon wheel.
