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.

Example 1
All the guests raised a toast to the newly-wedded couple, wishing them happiness in their new life together.

Example 2
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!

Example 3:
The First Language Consulting team would like to raise a toast and wish all of you a very Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
