Cranberry Juice Mocktail For Urinary Tract Infections

The tannins that create the characteristic mouth-puckering effect of cranberries are also astringent in the urinary system. (Astringents tighten tissues and are thought to reduce surface irritation and inflammation. Cranberry is acidic, but it takes a lot of volume to acidify the urine enough to kill bacteria.)

  • 3/4 cup (175 ml) carbonated (sparkling) water
  • 2 lemon slices
  • 2 teaspoons (14 g) honey
