Answer: Cupbearer of the gods

Ganymede was a mortal prince of Troy who drew the romantic attention of Zeus. Zeus brought him to Mount Olympus, where he was given eternal youth and immortality. He served as cupbearer to the gods since the previous holder of that position, Hebe, had resigned upon her marriage to Hercules.
