I enjoyed learning recently (from Michael Pollan’s The Botany of Desire) that the term “hard cider” is a relatively recent invention, used to subtly convey the idea that it’s possible to have cider without alcohol. Until the (inaccurately named) “temperance” movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, “cider” was assumed to mean an alcoholic beverage.


You were drinking vanilla liquor?

I always assumed hard cider meant applejack or calvados. You mean it’s just cider?
