Toasting Etiquette

Conversation over at WineTalk.com was an interesting one – what is the etiquette if someone toasts you?  Do you drink?  Do you just say thanks?  In the conversation, Susanne points to USA Society for Advancement of Education  for guidance which states: 

Give thanks. If you are the subject of a toast, do not take a sip of your drink. Thank the person toasting you. You also can show your gratitude by offering another toast.

I’ve always heard that you say “thanks” and drink with the toaster.  I’ve also heard that not only do you toast, but its bad luck not to look the toaster in the eye.

But then again, I’ve experienced that when you’re toasted it doesn’t really matter anyway

Enjoy the Wine Life!
