Thanks to both entrants for their clues for SWING. I don't think that I
need any clarification, so I'll go straight to the results:
Sleep around noon, steeped in drink (5)
definition: "sleep around"
SWI(N)G: N (noon) contained (steeped) in SWIG (drink)
A good definition, straightforward wordplay, and an amusing surface
(although I'm not quite clear what "sleep around noon" might mean).
I like that "around" looks like it's associated with "noon" at first
glance, disguising the definition.
I'll be hanged! (5)
This doesn't work. "To be hanged" could certainly clue "to swing", but
"I'll be hanged" clues a noun: A swing could be hung, but not hanged.
The winner is Mark, once he has sobered up.I take issue! It means, I'll swing. Plenty agree with me!
