Cranberry Mors

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


  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium stock pot and bring to a boil.

  2. Lower the heat to medium-low and simmer until all the berries have popped.

  3. Remove cinnamon stick. Serve warm or chilled.
