The Chi Chi was originally a vodka based colada style cocktail concept made with pineapple, coconut & lime created by Don the Beachcomber during the Tiki movement! We like it better with Whiskey or Mezcal. Take your pick on the base spirit...Vodka, Tequila or Whiskey!

5 GALLON KEG CONNECTION INSTRUCTIONS (USE 100% NITROGEN ONLY TO PRESSURIZE NON-CARBONATED COCKTAILS)
- Once the keg is batched accurately, insert the lid sideways at a 45 degree angle and spin the lid to line up the seal exactly and carefully with the rim of the keg and clamp the lid closed firmly.
- Shake the keg side to side mixing the settled ingredients from the bottom up over the top by tipping the keg side to side horizontally for 2 minutes.
- Connect the properly cleaned gray/silver colored cornelius connector onto the plug on the keg marked "gas in" connector and pushing it down over the plug firmly. Release the outer ring on the connector and it will clip onto the keg lid plug in the center of the lid.
- Make sure the gas is on, and flowing.
- Pull up on the pressure release ring on the top of the charging stone lid quickly 3 times and quickly release to properly cycle gas into the keg of batched cocktail.
- Test the flow and adjust the gas pressure down to 12-15psi if the flow is too fast.
- RESHAKE once or twice daily: shake the keg thoroughly from side to side lifting the bottom over the top for 1 full minute at least once per day to ensure proper mixing of all ingredients
IMPORTANT: MOST FROZEN MARGARITA MACHINES ONLY HOLD 6 - 10 QTS OF MIX IN THE HOLDING TANK. BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVERFILL THE HOLDING TANK. WE SUGGEST MAKING 5 GALLON BATCHES AND KEEPING THE EXTRA UNUSED BATCH IN COLD STORAGE TO REFILL THE HOLDING TANK IN THE FROZEN MARGARITA MACHINE AS NEEDED!
DON'T FORGET TO SHAKE OR STIR YOUR BATCH THOROUGHLY FOR A FULL MINUTE BEFORE YOU REFILL THE HOLDING TANK!!
