in thread I refer to a non-specified carbonated beverage as a:

Technically, milk *is* a soft drink. There are two classes of drink, hard (alcoholic) and soft (everything else). Hence hard cider. But then, way back when, you didn't exactly used to pay for water and you weren't likely to find milk on tap anywhere.

    Cider is cider and cider is an alcoholic apple-based product, at leat it is to an Englishman. This once caused some confusion when I got quite irate with an American friend when he told me he was giving his seven-year-old a bottle of cider to drink ;)

    The same American got angry with me when I once told him I had a bag of chips for dinner ;)

    Wonderful thing, language!
