Tips for Enjoying Wine | How to Make a Toast | Cooking with Wine
• When making a toast never bang on a glass; simply stand, holding your glass in the air.
• After you have the attention of the group, set your glass down, make the toast, then raise your glass again and ask the group to do the same as you say your closing words.
• Guests should respond by taking a sip of their drink. The person being toasted does not drink until the toast is completed.Three simple toasts to commit to memory...
