    Juice of choice + sparkling water.

    Add a dash of almond or vanilla extract if you are feeling adventurous.

    Vanilla + cherry juice + tiny bit of instant espresso + sparkling water kind of approximates cherry coke but not really.

    How about putting lemon juice in your Perrier? Or squeezing an orange in, unsweetened cranberry juice, or mashing up some mint? Or even some stevia if you'd like it sweet? Lots of possibilities...

    Kevita! It's my favorite pre/pro biotic drink made with kombucha and coconut water. They have an amazing mango coconut flavor and they're only about 20 calories a bottle. Soooo good! You can find them at Whole Foods.

    My local grocery store and Whole Foods carries the GT brand of Kumbacha....give it a try and see if that doesn't help the cravings. I love the stuff...hope to start making my own early next year.

    I love Reed's kombucha, especially the ginger flavor - so gingery. I also like Pelegrino with a big squeeze of lime juice. And grapefruit flavored Perrier. Tea with a tsp or so of sugar is nice before bed. I haven't been able to give up my beloved diet Pepsi though, not completely. Tea might do the trick if I were to push harder to make it during the day. I wish I loved plain water.

    You could try kombucha for something healthful and effervescent. It's a probiotic tea.

    Their is a soda in he health food stores called Zevia it is sweetened with Stevia. They have a cola it does not taste like diet coke but might serve the purpose.

    Seltzer water with a hint of citrus for the win.

    I could stand to branch out a bit flavor-wise... Maybe some pomegranate? Hmmmmm
