Favorite diet soft drinks?

I became a fan a few years ago of keeping a jug of water in the fridge with cut-up cucumbers and limes in it. Still do it a lot in the summer. Sometimes I'll put agave or Stevia in it; sometimes not. And I generally add a handful of crushed mint.

We live in Ontario just on the edge of the Canadian Shield and have a 150' drilled well (I probably have the depth wrong but Ed isn't here to ask) and our water is so good it's hard to believe.  We have it tested faithfully year after year and it's always been pure and devoid of the bad stuff they test it for and that is a boon.  Alas, I don't really like the taste of water very much although I am trying to drink more of it for health reasons.  OTOH, although our farm is worked by Other Ed, the soil is not too good and that's too bad.

I really can't think of the last time I had a soda/soft drink.  It's been so long.  It's water, rum or whiskey and my mama always said water was for bathing

My current daytime drink of choice is a half-and-half mix of diet CranCherry and sparkling water. Crancherry's too sweet and strong to drink straight; cut about half and half with  sparkling water, it's just about perfect.

 

It's sweetened with Sucralose.
