The term “toast” comes from Elizabethan England, when a piece of stale bread or spiced toast was usually put in the bottom of a cup of ale or wine to flavour it. In time, anyone whose qualities or accomplishments were frequently honoured with a group drink came to be called «toasts» (hence the phrase «toast of the town»). In Spanish, the custom is to say “¡Salud!” (To your health!), when clinking glasses and to look into the eyes of the person whom you are toasting.
