The Chinese equivalent to "cheers"(gān bēi ) is "drink up every drop given" or "empty one's glass". However on formal occasions one may propose a toast by drinking spirits in sips, rather than gulps if one is not  a heavy drinker. At an informal party acquaintances often encourage one another to drink their fill by saying"gān le "(Let's drink it up). This is generally understood as an expression of friendship and hospitality.
