To raise a toast
Today's expression is: to raise a toast
It means: to lift your glass (usually containing a drink like wine or cava) and express a wish or desire for success, happiness or other good news.
Someone might give a speech (discurso) at the moment of the toast (when you lift or raise your glass), but it is also common to simply say Cheers! and "clink" your glasses together.

Whenever we sit down to a big holiday meal at my house, we always raise a toast to the cook. After all, without his/her efforts, nobody would be eating!
