Definition of Nectar

  NECTAR   noun
A drink served at banquets of the Olympian deities.  The secret of its preparation is lost, but the modern Kentuckians believe that they come pretty near to a knowledge of its chief ingredient.
  Juno drank a cup of nectar,
  But the draught did not affect her.
  Juno drank a cup of rye --
  Then she bad herself good-bye.
