This is a perfect Thanksgiving beverage to serve your guests. You can adjust the sweetness easily! I added a cinnamon stick to warm the flavor up a bit!
Here are some interesting facts about this traditional Russian beverage:
"For a very long time a berry drink, mors, has been as popular in Russia as the other Russian drink – kvass. For the first time mors was mentioned in the “Domostroi”, a book of rules from the 16th century, but it was created much earlier. Today, mors fruit drinks are prepared using a simplified recipe. In the old days, mors was prepared using a rather complex technology."
4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1 cup of turbinado sugar
3 quarts water
1 cinnamon stick
Combine all ingredients in a medium stock pot and bring to a boil.
Lower the heat to medium-low and simmer until all the berries have popped.
Remove cinnamon stick. Serve warm or chilled.
