    Re: drinking alcohol

    I'm sure this isn't what you're looking for but once they've had far too much alcohol, many people are prone to throwing their arms around other people and happily slurring "I love you. You're my best friend!"

    Re: drinking alcohol

    Have a drink/a couple of drinks/a few drinks (the numbers usually underestimate the real number)

    Re: drinking alcohol

    Anyone fancy a pint?
    Shall we go for a quick bevy?
    Who's up for a quick one after work?
    Do you fancy a drink?
    Let's get hammered!
    We're going out on the p*ss tonight.
    He's plastered.
    Do you fancy a tipple?

    I could go on. I won't.

    Re: drinking alcohol

    I'm sorry I didn't ask the right question.
    I mean this: sometimes they say "cheers". I'm looking for other phrases or words.

    Oh. OK. That wasn't clear, you're right. When making a toast or clinking glasses, instead of "Cheers", we say:

    Bottoms up!
    Up yours! (Careful, this can be construed as rude.)

    At a wedding etc, you repeat whatever the words of the toast were, usually something like "To the bride and groom" or "To Jim and Sarah" (or, of course, any combination of male and female, male and male or female and female names").
