Sweden has some great European traditions when it comes to drinking and giving cheers to one another. Dating back all the way to the Vikings, Sweden, Norway, and the Netherlands all share very common histories which is why you can use this drinking term in any bar. You may not want to act like a viking and toast your glass in order to get your drink into your friends glass to make sure it isn’t poisoned, but it would make the locals laugh if you attempt it.
Skål – The term to cheers someone is Skål meaning “happiness or to your health”. If you plan on spending a while at a local pub, get ready to toast and give cheers all throughout the night.
