Glass of mors

Mors (Russian: морс) is a non-carbonated Russian fruit drink[1][2][3] prepared from berries, mainly from lingonberry and cranberry (although sometimes blueberries, strawberries, raspberries or sea-buckthorn). It is made by boiling berries with sugar or just mixing pure juice with sweetened water[1]. Some modern commercial brands use fermented and clarified juices blending with sugar syrup and drinking water. Instead of juice, fruit extracts may be used with the addition of aromatic essences, organic food acids, sugars, dyes and drinking water.

Mors is sometimes used in alcoholic cocktails, often mixed with vodka.

HistoryEdit

It is first mentioned in the 16th century in the Domostroy with instructions about how to make it, but has likely been around longer.[4][5]
