The Story Behind The Leo

Created as a homage to the Leo zodiac sign, this Daiquiri variation incorporates fresh strawberries to sweeten up the typically tart and refreshing Daiquiri. Yang also offsets some of the traditional white rum normally used with a half-shot of Campari for added complexity.



  • 1/4 ounce rum
  • 1/4 ounce Campari
  • 3/4 ounces fresh lime
  • 3/4 ounces simple syrup
  • 2 muddled strawberries
  • Garnish: strawberry


  1. Muddle strawberries gently in the mixing tin first, then add remaining ingredients plus ice.
  2. Shake and strain into a chilled coupe.
  3. Garnish with a strawberry.
