There is an uber-chic bar in London which began a quiet cocktail revival in London. This is the bar where celebrities like Oasis, U2, Madonna, George Michael, Giorgio Armaini flock to the altar of spirits. And the person behind the altar of 'spirited science' should have the palette of a sommelier and the ingenuity of a specialty chef and the charm of a PR Manager. So don't go 'straight' all the time…when mixes are good. That is the essence of a good resto bar…and there is one in Panjim that could tease the spirit in you even when you are down. It is aptly called the 'Tease'. And talking about spirited science, a recent festival on molecular mixology held in this very bar, coaxed the best out of the spirits to foam and froth and 'marry' its flavors to create a new dimension…Like the wedding of David Beckham to Posh Spice, the top bartender called in for the occasion used only fresh regional ingredients mixed with the top notch spirits. So order up that Pink Passion…the mix could get you thirsting for more. Or the Unbeaten Jalapeno Margarita...the sweet and sour mix could remain unbeaten in the annuals of mixology. But this resto bar has the most amazing collection of single malts too. So if you want to go 'straight' no one will mind. With the warm and casual feeling that this bar exudes, wait for Waheeda to belt out some great retro numbers. Nibble on spicy Calamari Peri-Peri, or the Chicken Cafreal on the skewer. The Vegetable Salt Pepper is another hot favourite while the Thai Wok Chicken could tease the juices for another helping. So for spirited mixes or for going 'straight' its bottoms up at Tease.
