Concoctions hurt by the sound of it (5)
I believe the answer is:
'concoctions' is the definition.
The definition and answer can be both things that one consumes for nourishment as well as being plural nouns.
Maybe you can see a link between them that I can't see?
'hurt by the sound of it' is the wordplay.
'hurt' becomes 'bruise' (bruise is a kind of hurt).
'by the sound of it' shows a homophone (sound like).
'bruise' is a homophone of 'BREWS'.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Another definition for brews that I've seen is " Makes tea".)
