“Every gift which is given, even though it be small, is in reality great,
if it is given with affection.
— Ancient Greek Lyric Poet, Pindar
Who is Pindar and why are we talking about muses? He was a prolific Greek poet known for writing “Victory Odes” to celebrate the winners of athletic contests such as the ancient Olympics.
He was our muse when we were naming a new craft cocktail that’s created around a lip-licking ancient Greek potion, Rakomelo. We called it Pindar’s Muse in homage to Greek poets, Greek liquors, and victory.
