Ross

I believe the answer is:

spirit

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'short' is the first definition.

(small drink of spirits)

'temper' is the second definition.

(thesaurus)

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for spirit that I've seen before include "Drink for a supernatural being", "Ghost or liquor", "Liveliness - hard liquor", "Demon - drink", "verve", "Jinn", "Liquor or ghost", "A shade", "Mood - ghost - alcohol" and "Mettle".)
