Drinking

在酒桌上喝酒也有很多学问讲究,以下是一些酒桌上不得不注意的小细节。

There are many points of knowledge and important things to be taken into consideration when drinking at a banquet. The following are some details requiring attention.

细节一:领导相互喝完才轮到自己敬酒。敬酒一定要站起来,双手举杯。细节二:可以多人敬一人,决不可一人敬多人,除非你是领导。细节三:自己敬别人,如果不碰杯,自己喝多少可视乎情况而定,比如对方酒量,对方喝酒态度,切不可比对方喝得少,要知道是自己敬人。细节四:自己敬别人,如果碰杯,一句,我喝完,你随意,方显大度。细节五:记得多给领导或客户添酒,不要瞎给领导代酒,就是要代,也要在领导或客户确实想找人代,还要装作自己是因为想喝酒而不是为了给领导代酒而喝酒。细节六:端起酒杯(啤酒杯),右手扼杯,左手垫杯底,记着自己的杯子永远低于别人。

The first detail: only after the leaders have toasted each other may you toast them. When proposing a toast, you must stand up and raise your glass with two hands. The second detail: it is permitted for many people to toast another individual but it is prohibited for one person to toast a group of people unless this person is a leader. The third detail: When you propose a toast to others, if you do not clink glasses, the amount that you drink depends on the circumstances; for example, your partner’s capacity for liquor and attitude towards drinking may be taken into account. Remember not to drink less than the opposite side, because you are the one that has proposed the toast. The forth detail: when you toast to others and clink glasses with him or her, you shall say, “I’ll drink it up, and you drink at will” so as to be magnanimous and tolerant. The fifth detail: remember to pour out liquor for leaders or clients frequently. Don’t drink wine on behalf of the leaders at will. If you want to, you must do so when the leader or the client really needs help. You should also pretend that you are drinking on behalf of them because you like drinking, not because you want to help them. The sixth detail: raise the glass (beer glassware) with the right hand holding the glass and the left hand supporting from the under. Remember your glass should never be higher than the glasses of others.
