Beers smug drunk sinks (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

submerges

'sinks' is the definition.
(submerging is a kind of sinking)

'beers smug drunk' is the wordplay.
'drunk' indicates anagramming the letters.
'beers'+'smug'='beerssmug'
'beerssmug' with letters rearranged gives 'SUBMERGES'.

(Other definitions for submerges that I've seen before include "Dunks", "Goes under, sinks".)
