Otherwise take spicy alcohol-laced treat! (5,4)
I believe the answer is:
'alcohol-laced treat' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this defines the answer.
'otherwise take spicy' is the wordplay.
'otherwise' is an anagram indicator.
'takespicy' is an anagram of 'TIPSY-CAKE'.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for tipsy cake that I've seen before include "Pudding" , "Dessert of sponge soaked with wine or spirits" , "sweet" , "Dessert of pastry, almonds and wine" , "Trifle with alcohol, almonds and crystallised fruit" .)
