Toasts

In almost every language there are toasts that are used when drinking alcoholic beverages or toasting. The most common wish is for health and general well-being. The so-called drinking in is an ancient custom, since there are people and alcohol. In quite a few toasts, the consumption of excessive alcohol is also described as unproblematic and positive. Therefore the reference is permitted: Alcohol is an excellent solvent. It dissolves families, marriages, friendships, work relationships, bank accounts, liver and brain cells. It just does not solve problems. But this should not in any way call into question a moderate enjoyment of wine.
