How the experience of stepping on crunchy autumn leaves got into a glass is one of life's great mysteries. But when the result tastes like cider, stop asking questions and open another. The crisp beverage, made from fermented apple juice, has recently exploded in popularity. Much like wine, still and sparkling options are available and flavor can range from dry to sweet depending on the variety.
