I watched the drama, and someone said "Tip a few back to Al"
Al was the name of the professor who had died last week.
and his student said "What do you say we hit a bar? Tip a few back to Al."
In this context what's the meaning of the phrase, "Tip a few back to somebody"?
Have a few drinks in his honor.
You make a toast "To Al!"
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.
