For information on a similarly-named (but differently spelled) alcoholic beverage in the Re-imagined Series, see Ambrosia.
Starbuck and Cassie drink ambrosa aboard the Rising Star (The Long Patrol).

Ambrosa is an expensive alcoholic intoxicant, either golden or red in color ("The Long Patrol", "Murder on the Rising Star").

The rarity of the beverage makes it valuable amongst the survivors of the Twelve Colonies; even during the war, 500-yahren-old ambrosa was not believed to exist.

Starbuck imagines being rich after finding many storage bins filled with ambrosa on Proteus, a penal colony that made ambrosa for the Colonial war effort. Were it not for the Cylon attack on Proteus, he would have become quite wealthy (The Long Patrol).
