I have 1/2 cup juice with a full can of club soda in a fancy wine goblet. This way it tastes like a pop and feels like a glass of wine, and I don't feel like i'm missing out on those two things that are too high in sugar.

Cut Juice with Water or Club Soda/Seltzer/Sparkling Water
Juice can be high sugars and calories. However, if you cut it with water, it lasts longer, tastes less sweet, but just as satisfying, and keeps those calories in check. Instead of water, use club soda for a great soda substitute! I now only use a splash of juice for flavor.
This works for lemonade, or even sodas cut with club soda.
Though I've pretty much given up on drinking sodas/pop, sometimes there's just this craving for something fizzy with flavor. Rather than grabbing a soda, I have sparkling water (or club soda), and put in about a tbsp of whatever flavoring I want. I use the syrups they have for making coffee with, and there's a wide variety. The sugar free are even better. 0 cals and still delish. Great way to get your soda-fix
