    There isn't a specific term for this custom in English so you have to describe it instead, like "drinking with linked arms."

    For example, you could say: They drank with linked arms.

     

    'locked' is also used instead of linked.."They locked arms and drank together."

     

    I'm also mystified. The closest thing I can think of is when a newly-married couple are holding a glass of champagne each, and they link their drinking arms and then drink that way.

    We don't really have a common phrase for it.
