I like buying those Torani flavorings and mixing them with sparkling water or iced teas (green is a favorite). They have lots of SF options too. They're pretty cheap at cash and carry or similar.

Coconut water. I take it everywhere...especially where friends will be drinking (parties, boating, outtings). When they see the container they say, "Oh, we will have to buy you some for next time...". I say, "Sure, stock 'em up for me!"

Oh man you're brave. I'm supposed to drink that after hot yoga but oh my gosh I can't stand the taste. Really cold, its ok. I'd rather just take an electrolyte replacement. But it is really good for you!

If I am out socializing and others are drinking.. I go for a tonic and cranberry... as a bonus: ask for it in whatever glass they serve boozy drinks in... and no one asks you why you aren't drinking.

Bartenders understand what you're doing too, no need to explain, just ask.

I'm pretty boring and stick mostly to just coffee and plain water. Occasionally a ginger ale but that's about it!

Seltzer or mineral water with a lime.
For a super splurge...a coffee iced cream soda. OMG my mouth is watering!

Pretty much my speed as well. Ginger ale is fine and if they don't have that a coke will do.

If I'm at the bar and can place the order myself I'll go with a tonic water.

Fizzy water.

I used to guzzle Perrier but then I bought a Soda Stream. Now I can flavour it however I want and have far less recycling.

Root beer for some reason, I try not to drink it too much

And I drink so much coffee that I made it my New Year's resolution to drink more water.

I mainly just drink water.

If I go out I will drink ginger ale or a Coke.

I quit drinking soda about 5 years ago but now that I am sober I only drink it when I am out.

Pretty much the same with the occasional Mt. Dew.

Coffee, coffee and more coffee.
With heavy (35%) cream.

And for a change, sometimes sparkling mineral water with lemon or lime or any kind of tea.

I received a mocktails book from my wife for Christmas. For NYE we made a grapefruit-basil mojito and it was tremendous. Gonna try a peach bellini this weekend.

Ditto. I love my Soda stream. I still haven't figured out if it's actually cheaper than buying fizzy water but I do like the variety.

I drink a lot of sparkling waters, especially Polar waters, San Pelligrinos, Perriers and fruit flavored waters that grocery stores sell, usually under their own respective labels.

I drink diet soft drinks during the day, some with aspartame, some with sucralose and some with stevia, and, occasionally, a Tab (which contains saccharine).

And iced tea with meals.

Ironically, even after getting sober, I still drink a lot.

Just not the stuff that causes me to lose people, jobs and my sanity.

That book sounds awsome. Can you give me more details about it, please!
Thanks

What brand of Soda Stream do you all have???
I was craving a spritzer earlier and realized I just wanted something fizzy (not the wine).
