Do we say "drink to your success"

  1. BEFORE the success (We wish somebody success); or

  2. AFTER the success (We congratulate somebody on their success)?


Yes, it is possible!

An entry on the dictionary says -

to wish someone success, good luck, good health etc before having an alcoholic drink:[British English] "Let's drink to your success in your new job."

So, it is used after the task as it is celebrating the success.

    You are welcome. Note that the dictionary lists various uses of 'drink' and they all are interesting! OP's question is typically taken as an example on Longman. – Maulik V Apr 8 '16 at 10:18
