Noticeably Smoother

The Elit Mule served at the Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore is a tantalizing combination of Stoli Elit Vodka, lime sour and Fever-Tree Ginger Beer. It contains all the essential ingredients of a Moscow Mule but with a huge step up in quality and, therefore, flavor. The Stoli Elit is noticeably smoother than most other vodkas, which allows the distinct, fresh ginger in the Fever-Tree to shine through, perfectly punctuated by the tart lime juice. If you’re a classic Moscow Mule-lover, this drink is for you!

Whether you’re a member of the jet-setting crowd or merely a seasoned Santa Barbara local, you’ll find yourself at home under the Lounge’s blown glass chandeliers and hand-painted ceilings. You can either enjoy your drink from a cozy leather chair in front of the fireplace, or take it outside to the terrace to soak up the breathtaking ocean views. Either way, the setting and service will not disappoint. With a sizeable menu of Spanish tapas, live entertainment and Happy Hour specials throughout the week, plan on enjoying the atmosphere (and a few Elit Mules!) over the course of an evening.
