5 Healthy Incontinence – Friendly Cocktails

Enjoy Your Incontinence – Friendly Drink this Weekend: TGIF!


Drinking alcohol is a popular social activity, and those with incontinence may wonder, is alcohol off limits? The bad news is alcohol may cause you run to the bathroom more often, due to the way it affects your ADH levels. The good news is most people with incontinence can drink alcohol, but they drink incontinence – friendly cocktails and in moderation.


What is an incontinence – friendly cocktail? An incontinence – friendly cocktail consists of less calories and more deliciousness. These cocktails use fresh juices or sugar substitutes so they do not disturb your beach body. If you have incontinence, maintaining a healthy weight is very important. That doesn’t mean you NEED a beach body, but excess pressure on your pelvic floor muscles will make leakage worse. So incontinence – friendly cocktails hold back on the calories! Plus these recipes are incredibly delicious because they have a fresh twist on the classics.


Beer and Wine


In general women should have no more than 1 drink per day, and men should have no more than 2 drinks per day. One drink being equal to a 12 oz beer, 5 oz glass of wine or 1 ½ oz distilled spirits (vodka, whiskey, gin, etc.). This rule also applies to people with incontinence. Incontinence – friendly beer is light, stay away from heavy craft beers. And incontinence – friendly wines are, you guessed it, light as well. Something like prosecco or other light white wines.


Here are some fresh cocktails approved by Healthy Living, that you will impress your friends with next weekend.
