Lie about honeyed wine as fruity quencher (7)
I believe the answer is:
'fruity quencher' is the definition.
The definition suggests a singular noun which matches the answer.
'lie about honeyed wine' is the wordplay.
'about' indicates putting letters inside.
'honeyed wine' becomes 'mead'.
'lie' enclosing 'mead' is 'LIMEADE'.
'as' acts as a link.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for limeade that I've seen before include "Winter festival" , "soft drink" , "Fizzy drink" , "Citrus drink" , "it's a soft one" .)
