Almost all Russian traditional drinks are original from Russia and are not present in other national cuisines. Those are sbiten', kvass, medovukha and mors. Many of them are no longer in use. Long since they were drunk as a complement to meat and poultry dishes, sweet porridge, and dessert. Standing apart from all of them was sbiten, which was replaced by tea by later times in Russia.

One of the most ancient drinks is Medovukha, derived from the word "med," for honey. It should not be confused with the so-called stavlenniy myod (brewed honey, mead); medok is made of water with small amounts of honey and sometimes hops, "stavlenniy myod" is an alcoholic drink not unlike wine, based on large amount of honey and berry juices.

Mors is made of berry juice, mixed in different proportions with water.
