: What does "s h i t in your eye" mean? I've heard several people toast shot drinks to it.

It's an obscene version of "here's mud in your eye", which dates back to the 1920s. There have been several discussions here about this phrase, which you can search for. There are at least four main theories, but the fact is that nobody really knows its origin. (VSD)
