ASK A QUESTION I have new Mexican friends , how do you " toast " when drinking
when drinking with the boys , is toasting ok ? such as " cheers " etc , what is appropriate ?
My mexican friend always was saying "salud!".
This is an option for when you are doing shots:
"Arriba, abajo, al centro y pa' dentro." "Arriba", put your glass up, "abajo", glass down, "al centro", glass in the middle, "y pa' dentro", chug.
Remembre, just for shots, for cheers (as said before) is "salud".
A more elaborate traditional toast is "Salud, amor y pesetas. Y tiempo para gastarlas." (or "... y dinero. Y tiempo para gastarlo.") However, this does not easily lend itself to toasts done in chorus.
