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.
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).
