    Default Crossword Clues

    A clue from a crossword a while ago, and still can't get.

    It is seven letters, and the straight forward clue is Liquor, and the cryptic clue is, Mood not induced by drinking wine?

    I'm stumped.

    I have won the odd prize, but I used to set one every month for our employees.

    And you are most certainly not stupid, it is the compilers' job to make things difficult.

    Thanks for your vote of confidence! I like doing crosswords and find them challenging.
    Here is a famous one from the Times from many years ago (I'm sure you'll get).
    The clue is gesg - two words - nine letters and four.

    Edit to add that I googled because I know nothing about ancient queens
