Advocate a couple of drinks (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

supporter

Here is my best explanation:

'advocate' is the definition.

(supporter is a kind of advocate)

'a couple of drinks' is the subsidiary indication.

'a couple of drinks' means two substitutions for 'drink'.

'drink' becomes 'sup'.

'drink' becomes 'porter' (porter is a kind of drink**).

'sup'+'porter'='supporter'

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for supporter that I've seen before include "One helping", "Stay", "Fan; heraldic figure", "angel", "One cheers", "second", "Second", "Strut", "Advocate" and "sports fan?".)
