Here is my best explanation:

'a drink' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'one in sweden's ready' is the wordplay.
'one' becomes 'i' (Roman numeral).
'in' is an insertion indicator.
'sweden's ready' becomes 'kr' (kronor, Swedish currency**).
'i' placed within 'kr' is 'KIR'.

'for' is the link.
