Face up to fermented hot drink (3,2,3)
'hot drink' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)
'face up to fermented' is the wordplay.
'fermented' indicates anagramming the letters.
'faceupto' is an anagram of 'CUP OF TEA'.
(Other definitions for cup of tea that I've seen before include "The English panacea", "Face pout (anag.)", "Hot drink", "Our national panacea - personal field of interest".)
