Here is my best explanation:

'meeting' is the definition.
(forum is a kind of meeting)

'drink needed after foreign office' is the wordplay.
'drink' becomes 'rum' (I've seen this before).
'needed after' says to put letters next to each other.
'foreign office' becomes 'fo'.
'rum' after 'fo' is 'FORUM'.
