Just tried this today. It really works. Pour a few ounces (about half a cup) of PURE pomegranate juice (no juice cocktails. They are only about 10% pomegranate. Northland brand is the cheapest I have found at 3.94 USD at Wal-Mart, located in the organic section.) Mix in about 1/8 teaspoon each of ground cloves, cinnamon, and ginger. Heat in microwave until boiling (note: boils over very easily so don't leave while microwaving.) Strain through coffee filter into clean small glass. Add sugar or honey to taste.
Pomagranate Juice: Great source of Vitamins A, C, and E, folic acid, potassium, and antioxidants.
Cinnamon: Possesses antimicrobial properties as well as being another source of antioxidants. Also helps stave off the common cold.
Ginger: Known historically to treat inflammation. Also good if you are suffering from an upset stomach due to flu or cold as well.
Cloves: Well known for pain killing properties. Helps to 'numb' the throat for a little while. Also has antiseptic properties which would be good in the case of bacterial infections.
