Terra Boa

Terra Boa cocktail with tequila, yellow Chartreuse, coconut milk, lime juice, simple syrup, and soda water

The Terra Boa is a beachy spritzer from the mind of Jacyara de Oliveira, beverage director at Chicago’s El Che Bar. Tequila, coconut milk, and yellow Chartreuse (a sweet herbal liqueur) are an unusual combination, but taste so light and fresh together, with the help of lime and sparkling water.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the sparkling water) with ice, briefly. Strain into an ice-filled tall glass or clay pot (like a Mexican jarrito). Top with a fat sprig of mint, coconut shavings, and a pinch of salt (de Olivera uses a smoked salt).

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
