    Bottoms up!

    Hello, I am not sure if that idiom means also to drink the content of the glasses all in one go or just to lift the glasses when drinking a toast. And if it does not is there any idiom used to drink the content all in one go? Thanks.

    Re: Bottoms up!

    Bottoms up does mean to drink. The bottom of the glass will be up in the air so the liquid flows down -- but to be honest, I don't believe it means to drink it all down in one giant gulp. You can "chug" the contents of a bottle or glass all at once.

    To just raise your glass to someone, you can say "Cheers."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
