Kykeon or Kikeon (Gr. κυκεών, from κυκάω, “to stir, to mix”) was an Ancient Greek drink made mainly of water, barley and naturally occurring substances. It was used at the climax of the Eleusinian Mysteries to break a sacred fast, but it was also a favorite drink of Greek peasants.
Kykeon is mentioned in Homeric texts: the Iliad describes it as consisting of barley, water, herbs, and ground goat cheese (XI, 638–641). In the Odyssey, Circe adds some honey and pours her magic potion into it (X, 234).

Rather, it is a lifestyle – including foods, activities, meals with friends and family, and wine in moderation. It has been studied and noted by scores of leading scientists as one of the healthiest diets in the world. Just as important as the health factor, the Mediterranean Diet is full of delicious, flavor-filled dishes and meals.
