What would be an appropriate and fitting libation for Apollon?

Other than Ceres/Δημήτηρ – it is generally true that any of the five libation substances – wine, water, oil, milk, honey – or combinations thereof in some cases (watered wine, honeyed wine, and honeyed milk would sometimes be libated) is suitable for virtually any deity and any occasion.

There are no special restrictions associated with Apollo on these libations that I know of.

"O Best of Gods, blest daimon crown'd with fire . . . hear, and from punishment my soul absolve, the punishment incurr'd by pristine guilt, thro' Lethe's darkness and terrene desire: and if for long-extended years I'm doom'd in these drear realms Heav'n's exile to remain, O grant me soon the necessary means to gain that good which solitude confers on souls emerging from the bitter waves of fraudful Hyle's black, impetuous flood!"
-Iulianic Hymn to Apollon-Helios, ll. 65-106

"Having come for punishment, one must be punished. One must not pull apart the god within oneself."
-Iamblichus, Vita Pythagorica

"Truth would you teach, or save a sinking land,
All hear, none aid you, and few understand."
-Alexander Pope
