OceanSpray did a cranberry-raspberry combo that I quite liked - it didn't have that back of the tongue astringency you get with straight cranberry, I thought. It's one of the grocery items I don't have to have in the house any more and really don't miss!

FF my mother loathed the juice (it was my prostate-plagued then SO who self-prescribed it) but swallowed the capsules quite happily. They're large but the shell is gelatine, I think, so they slip down fairly easy.

Some of the cocktails are really just kool-aid in disguise - sugar, flavourings and a few ounces of juice. The better ones are all juice but still have a higher percentage of cheaper juices than actual cranberry juice, so making your own blends at home, whether with water, juice or pop, allows you to know what you are actually drinking.

I had a urologist tell me that there are certain properties in cranberries that attach them selves to the lining of the bladder and help with the inflammation and bacteria. But it has to be real cranberry juice not the cocktail juice.

Maybe they're talking about the citric acid that is in some mixes..not sure. Correct if I'm wrong but I thought the cranberry juice thing was found to be bunk...not to help at all, but the increase in liquid helped? Of course it depends on where you read who you believe...as in coffee is great for ya today....oops but tomorrow no it isn't it's deadly...

FYI -- a doctor told me this weekend to avoid the sweetened "cocktail" juice. (At lest if you are using it for ut health. He also said the pills are fine.

I drink it straight but I sometimes add tonic water to pure fruit juices.

No, never of that. But, cranberry pills are good, not so much sugar as in store bought juices and drinking filtered water.

Regarding cranberry juice, is there another flavor that can be added to the cranberry juice that actually taste good?

I bought a bottle of pure cranberry juice from Whole Foods, and my gosh even adding water to it it still makes you go cross-eyes and pucker up. I tried mixing it with Ginger Ale... believe me, I don't recommend that combination.

Oh how I wish I could find cranberries/orange relish, that was really good, but that is seasonal.

I'd be leary about giving anything with anything such as koolaid with high contents of sugar.

Cranberry juice is often recommended. I don't think a UTI in the elderly is a do-it-yourself project. Has this older person seen a doctor?

Well it's always a good idea to try to get them to drink more, but kool-aid has no magical healing properties and there are lots of healthier options available.
