I know what cider is now but I didn't know 16 years ago.
In Japan, 'cider' is lemonade and 'lemonade' is proper lemon juice.
So I didn't dream that cider is alcoholic drink.
Who and how people decided to call lemonade 'cider' in Japan but if you order 'cider' you will get sweetened sparkling water in Japan.
But at the same time, I wonder why English people decided to call the sweetened sparkling water 'lemonade'? It tastes million miles away from 'Lemon'.
OK, then you may ask what we call cider in Japan.
We call cider 'apple alcohol'!
Could it be any clearer? Perfect!
