Crossword Genius

Mean to get drunk (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

tight

I believe this clue is a double definition.

'mean' is the first definition.
('tight' can be a synonym of 'mean')

'drunk' is the second definition.
(I've seen this before)

'to get' is the link.

(Other definitions for tight that I've seen before include "Stretched" , "Steaming" , "Hard to move; drunk" , "Sozzled; mean" , "reluctant to buy a round?" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
