The Portuguese language is very similar to Spanish and therefor many phrases are used similarly when speaking. One such phrase is how to cheers or toast someone when drinking.
Cheers in Portuguese
While visiting Brazil you will most likely start drinking the popular rum called cachaca. It’s served at every bar and makes a good shot during nighttime entertainment. Before sipping it you will want to say “Saúde” (meaning good health). It’s polite to offer this toast before drinking alcohol as the locals enjoy socializing and giving cheers to one another.
Other than Saúde you can also say tim-tim which is more pronounced like chin chin which is another common term for toasting.
