The Origin Of Toasting Is To Avoid Being Poisoned.
Everyone who has ever taken a drink has toasted with their companions. A ceremonial touching of glasses is a universal sign of friendship and mutual respect, but it hasn’t always been that way. These days, we don’t really have to worry about anyone trying to poison us to death, at least not on a daily basis. Back in Medieval Europe, however, it was a whole different ballgame. It wasn’t uncommon to have dinner and drinks with someone who could very well be secretly plotting your demise.
When someone handed you a drink, it became customary to aggressively hit their cups together, resulting in liquid from both glasses spilling into each other’s drinks. Essentially, they were saying “Listen bucko, if you’re going to poison me – I’m taking you along for the ride.”
And The Winner Is..
The most popular shot in the world is vodka... largely propped up by the Russians where vodka is by and far the number one drink in the world.

Abraham Lincoln is known for many things. When it comes to presidents, let’s face it – they just don’t make’em like they used to. Honest Abe is very well-liked, but perhaps even more so by some of the patrons who used to hang out in his fine drinking establishments.
We know him for the Emancipation Proclamation, the Gettysburg Address, and his proclivity for badass headwear. But back in the day, he was known as a shopkeeper and a bartender. In fact, that’s where he earned the nickname “Honest Abe.” It was long before his presidency. He earned the nickname for his fair business dealings with his customers – in other words he probably never tried to pour a drink short.
