Gestes français – French Gestures—Gesture 15: « Verre dans le nez »


To indicate that someone is drunk, the French say “Il a un verre dans le nez” or “Il a un coup dans le nez.”Make a loose fist, hold it up in front of your nose, and twist your hand (as you would rev a motorcycle) while tilting your head the other way.
