You must carefully regulate the amount of booze you pour into the jug keeping in mind that this is a communal drink and your mates might not like their poison as potent as you do. Be a considerate friend! You can use whatever booze you want and whichever mixer you prefer, and on this particular occasion, as the title of this post suggests, we went with the Chivas and Green Tea. I can understand how fascinating this combination may seem to some people but I assure it is an extremely smooth mix. Firstly it is not as sweet as your run of the mill carbonated mixers and secondly it is not carbonated so you end up feeling a lot lighter.
Once you have found the perfect Zen balance in your pitcher you can go ahead and share the concoction. Dispense generously amongst your friends. As you can see the drinking glasses provided in most clubs, bars, and restaurants here in China are quite small. Each one can hold only about 3 or 4 large sips. This actually makes the use of mixed drinks in a communal pitcher even more beneficial. We also tend to GAMBAI (bottoms up) more often and get drunk even more quickly.
Once all the mates have been watered you can take a good fill of the swill yourself. I like the combination of Chivas and Green Tea. On occasion I will even mix Green Tea with my Jack Daniels rather than coke. It is nice to get a break from the carbonated drinks for a while. Keep in mind that the Green Tea is slightly sweetened. Cheers!
