    Re: apple cider/juice

    No. In the United States, apple cider refers to the unprocessed liquid that you get from apples. The apples are washed, cut, and ground into mash before being pressed. The resulting cider usually contains apple pulp and is dark, brown, and cloudy. The beverage is perishable and must be refrigerated.

    Apple juice is processed further, and often has sweeteners and preservatives added, and has a much longer shelf life.

    Angli,
    Cider in England is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented apples. It is has an alcohol content of between 2 and 9% and is traditionally brewed (mainly) in the southern counties of England.

    As in England, here in the USA, Cider can also be an alcoholic beverage, however it is referred to as 'Hard Cider', but can also be from other fruits with the additional nomenclature of the specific fruit added, as in 'Hard Pear Cider', or 'Hard Peach Cider'.

    However, after consuming too much, you might find yourself explaining to the 'Ossifer' that you only had "tee martoonis".
