Talented with a drink (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ale

'a drink' is the definition.
(type of beer)

'talented with' is the wordplay.
'with' indicates a hidden word.
'ALE' is hidden in the letters of 'talented'.

(Other definitions for ale that I've seen before include "A drink; sounds like become ill" , "Alcoholic drink" , "Light-coloured beer" , "brew" , "Sold in 23" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
