This bane might be drink (8)


I believe the answer is:


'drink' is the definition.
(absinthe is a kind of drink)

'this bane might be' is the wordplay.
'might be' is an anagram indicator.
'thisbane' anagrammed gives 'ABSINTHE'.

(Other definitions for absinthe that I've seen before include "alcohol" , "Liqueur originally containing wormwood" , "Aniseed flavoured liqueur" , "Green aniseed liqueur" , "Potent aniseed-flavoured drink" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
