How to make ambrosia and nectar
Nectar and Ambrosia by E.M. HamillCallie, a Classics major, flees home to protect her family from a monster straight out of mythology. Visions lead her to Nectar and Ambrosia: the weirdest pub on Earth, where inter-dimensional travelers with attention seeking issues get drunk in between the A-list celebrity lives they create. They cant pretend to be gods anymore—not since a treaty with the current Supreme Deity promising they wont intervene in human affairs.
The Doorkeeper of this threshold, Florian, rides herd on the rowdy Amaranthine and offers her shelter and a job. Callie likes the lonely, mysterious bartender more than she should. For Florian, her presence is a ray of light in the gray monotony of his sentence behind the bar, but he keeps a cautious distance—the truth of how he became Doorkeeper could change Callies perception of him forever.
When angels show up for a war council over Zeuss irrational mutters about a comeback, Callie has uncontrolled visions of an apocalypse. Ex-gods realize she’s the first Oracle Priestess in generations. All Callie wanted was keep her parents safe, and now it seems she must sacrifice her future to keep the rest of humanity safe, too. Ambrosia could be the key to harnessing her visions— or it could cost her life.
War is coming. The threshold between worlds has never been more fragile. Callie must discover who is pulling Zeuss strings and avert the final battle—before the immortal vying to become the next Supreme Deity kills her first.

If the residents of Mt. Olympus feasted on ambrosia and nectar, then they were feasting on a delicacy of divinity indeed! Ambrosia is one of those dishes I look forward to with great zeal, for when citrus season comes in from our neighboring state to the south, I know that my treasured citrus salad is at hand. California and Texas, too, have fabulous citrus crops, and I take great pride in mixing different types of fresh citrus ambrosias. Of course, when someone else makes it, it always tastes better.

In Greek mythology it was believed that the gods had a special food and drink that granted the gift of immortality. The food was called ambrosia and the drink was called nectar. Historians believe, had this food really existed, it would be made with honey, since the ancient Greeks believed that it had healing powers and may have possibly granted immortality. I took the idea of honey and ran wild with it for this recipe. For decoration, you will need 2 apples, finely sliced, and one pear, also finely sliced. If you want to get extra fancy like I did, 4 dried figs to go neatly on top. For the glaze, you will need 2 cups of honey and 2 cups of heavy whipping cream.
The healing god food used in emergencies, when demigods are seriously hurt. Ambrosia will cure almost any injury, although too much can make a demigod feverish and kills mortals. At Camp Half-Blood ambrosia comes in squares in sealed bags. On Mount Olympus you can buy it on a stick. Sort of a combo cream cheese square and Blondie recipe. I recoiled at the taste, because I was expecting apple juice.
