While I did have an idea about what the Strands today was about, instantly spotting MARGARITA in the top left confirmed it. Right under it, I found MOJITO. Running vertically at the top right, there was DAIQUIRI and that led me straight to finding COCKTAILS as the Spangram for the day.

On the left side of the Spangram in the middle, there was SOUR. The bottom right housed SPRITZ and GIMLET, with the latter being the only word in the round that I hadn’t heard of.
