Nectar

A thick, sweetened juice made from fruit, although some may have water added. Nectars are most commonly made from peaches, apricots, pears, blackcurrants, guavas or sour cherries. Nectar also refers to the sugary liquid produced by flowers and collected by bees. The bees ingest the nectar, which is then chemically transformed and regurgitated as honey.
