Well done Susie, you're right! Looked one up on Google. That clue was too cryptic for me.

OK Steve... here goes. Anagram of organise (signalled by the word confused) around the letter p (for pea, which is a pulse like beans and lentils) gives you Singapore. A lifetime of cryptic crosswords helps!

So did I at first, and bean and lentil. Then I googled tomato juice cocktails and grenadine cocktails and in the latter list the word Singapore leapt out at me.

Thanks Kate. I think the laurels should really go to Margaret as she suggested goulash and moussaka but didn't follow them through. Well done to her!
