According to Morten's List, this toast may have arisen from the Bible story found in the 9th chapter of the Gospel of John, this morning's Second Lesson, where "mud in the eye" is a medium of healing and well-being, like that beverage that's about to go down!

Possibly could also be connected with Ananias of the New Testament- who gives back the blinded Saul- become Paul, upon the road to Damascus - his sight, with the help of 'mud in his eyes'. This is just a suggestion on my part.
