Tired of plain ole water!

What does everyone drink besides just plain ole water? Looking for other options......

    Well, to replace just water, I like to drink Minute Maid Lemonade 5. It only has 5 calories for a 12 oz. can.

    I squeeze the juice of half a lemon into my water bottle, or sometimes a whole lime. I find that really refreshing, and don't miss the squash that I used to have. If I'm out of citrus fruit, I have quarter of a glass of orange juice and top that up with water.

    I make weak tea, usually three different flavors throughout the day.

    I cold steep loose leaf tea in a strainer or Bodum. I fill my water bottle with it each morning.

    I like the Minute Maid water enhancers. Raspberry Lemonade is my favorite. The mango one...not so much.

    There's the green, the black, the oolongs, the chais, and herb teas. Life is not long enough to try them all.
    A rose hip and mint concoction is citrus-y, red, and interesting.

    Not to mention suspending powdered cocoa in hot water; adding a little stevia, milk and cinnamon.

    Wow! Thanks for all the answers. I'm trying to stop drinking sodas because of all the calories, & I'm getting tired of water. Don't know what Mio is. Gonna try some herbal teas.

    Some of the Celestial Seasonings Antioxidant teas have stevia in them, so I don't need to add sweetener. (I don't like the stevia that you add yourself.)

    A note on green tea - you make it with water less hot than at a full boil. I have an electric water kettle with three settings and the lowest setting is perfect. A hot water dispenser in a bubbler is also perfect.

    Also, green tea should be steeped for less time than black. IMO, three minutes is perfect.

    I use something similar to Crystal lite, but cheaper, diluted so it's not so sweet, also an infusion from a company called Pur, that jut slightly sweetens and gives it some regenerative qualities.

    i have a soda stream at home and make a lot of sparkling water...I like it with squeezed lime or grapefruit. I also drink a lot of green tea iced.

    Jasmine green tea!

    SPARKLING water.
    I try to stay away from artificial sweeteners. I keep a jar of lemon juice to add to my water if I'm out of fresh lemons.
    I'm mostly trying to wean myself off of sugar even in my coffee.

    Diet soda, and I keep a water bottle with me at all times, to which I sometimes add a fruity flavored green tea bag.
