Image of champagne glasses toasting themselves In almost every language there are toasts, which are used when enjoying alcoholic beverages or toasting. Most often you want to do this health and general wellbeing. The so-called To drink is an ancient custom since there were people and alcohol. In not a few toasts, the consumption of abundant alcohol is described as unproblematic and positive.

We would therefore like to point out that alcohol is an excellent solvent. It dissolves families, marriages, friendships, employment relationships, bank accounts, liver and brain cells. It just doesn't solve any problems. But this is by no means meant to be moderate Weingenuss question.

Slogans & rhymes

To the middle, to the breast, to the sack, zack zack. In this sense - off into the gutter.

We wish all women that they are only surrounded by beautiful and exotic animals. That they have a jaguar in the garage, a tiger in bed, a sable around their shoulders and above all a donkey who can pay for it all (Russian source).

Man drinks, the horse drinks, but sometimes it is the other way round.

Drink, smoke, kiss, cheer, drive and overtake,
everything brings you - whether early or later - to Peter in the ether.

With a stiff arm to the stiff middle, according to old custom and fatherly custom.

May your path be easy for you, may the wind always come from behind, may the sun shine warmly on your face, may a gentle rain fall on the fields. And until we see each other again, may God hold you in his hand. Bottom up!
