My English teacher made the special drink for Christmas, and we enjoyed drinking it when I went to her house. The drink is called "Hot Apple Cider". Why "cider"? Because soda is usually called cider in Japan. She said cider is apple juice or apple alcoholic drink. I didn't know that. And this hot apple drink included cloves, cinnamon, vanillabeans and star anise. It was so delicious, good smell, and it must be a very healthy drink. I love it, so I want to try making it at home!
