AMBROSIA

The power giving and immortality boosting drink of the Greek Gods, often shared with their mortal favourites.

Ambrosia goes hand in hand with nectar, like beer goes with kebabs, and provides the cornerstone of the Greek godfolks balanced diet. But it also doubles as a marinade, and a quick rub down will ensure all but the most severely dead will be bouncing around like young gazelles in no time. But nothing is 100% foolproof.

Artemis tried basting her son with ambrosia and subjecting him to a nightly dose of naked flame but still had to dip Achilles in the Styx to gain semi-immortality. It would've been full-on godhood if she wasn't so clumsy with the dunking.

Ambrosia is harvested from a top secret location beyond the clashing rocks and delivered in un-marked envelopes by specially trained doves, so don't hold your breath if you're out Ambrosia hunting. In all honesty you have more chance of finding rocking horse doo-doo.
