Violent kid drinking spirit (6)


I believe the answer is:


'violent' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'kid drinking spirit' is the wordplay.
'kid' becomes 'rag' (I've seen this in other clues).
'drinking' is an insertion indicator.
'spirit' becomes 'gin' (alcoholic spirit).
'rag' going around 'gin' is 'RAGING'.

(Other definitions for raging that I've seen before include "wild" , "(Of fire or storm) violent" , "Furious as storm may be" , ". . . . . . Bull (Martin Scorsese film)" , "Boiling with anger" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
