DRINK-1: meaning and examples

Good morning everyone.

I hope you had a good weekend. This week we are going to do a short series of Daily Vitamins about expressions that use the word drink.

I want to remind you that we did Vitamins about "going for a drink" on June 1st and 2nd of 2006. We also covered the word drunk on December 12th, 2007. You may want to go back and look at those Daily Vitamins too.

Today's expression is: to drink to somebody or something

Meaning: to wish somebody good luck, health or success as you lift your glass and then drink from it. (Also see the Daily Vitamin "to raise a toast" from December 23, 2005.)

Example 1:
Let's all raise our glasses and drink to Michael and Liz. The newlyweds!

Example 2:
After the awards ceremony, the MC (MC = master of ceremonies) made a toast to the winners. He asked us all to raise our glasses and drink to them. It was very emotional.

Enjoy the rest of your day.
