Son given very warm drink (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

shot

Here is my best explanation:

'drink' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'son given very warm' is the subsidiary indication.

'son' becomes 's'.

'given' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'very warm' becomes 'hot' (I've seen this before).

's'+'hot'='shot'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for shot that I've seen before include "Small drink; photograph", "Fired - attempt", "Photo; small drink", "Lead pellet", "Goal attempt", "Sent a bullet", "Charge", "Short drink; attempt", "Photo; lead pellets" and "Photo; try".)
