Help!

Last year I was invited to a New Year's Eve party where the requirement was to have a toast. The host pulled names from a hat periodically, rang a bell, and whoever's name was drawn had to propose a toast. I didn't take it seriously, but by the time my name was drawn all I could come up with was okole maluna (the most obscure one I could come up with). This year I'd like to arrive better prepared. Anyone know some good ones?

Claire, I just did a quick google search for 'clever toasts' and there are a number of websites devoted to witty/clever toasts for every occasion.

It depends on your audience.
If it was your cooking friends, you could use someone's signature line. (there are a lot of great ones out there on DC)

Something like: "Raise your drinks with this quote from Carl Sagan--If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe."

You said the host rings a bell, so...
"Ask not for whom the bell tolls. It tolls for thee."

There is an Irish toast that is popular when amongst friends.
May the roof above us never fall in, and may we friends gathered below never fall out.

“May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.”
