Give me your low cal/no cal BFing beverage ideas

Ok ladies, I'm sure I'm not the only one who has incredible thirst because of BFing. I can only drink so much plain water and herbal tea. I need some other ideas. I also cut juice with water for flavor (like 1/3 juice and 2/3 water).

My best new drink is water with a few thin slices of cucumber and a few crushed mint leaves. Very tasty and refreshing.

Who has favorite teas, tea combos, other combos? Anything!

Personally, I drink decaf tea with Stevia.

My hubby made something with watermelon and sparkling water. I think maybe it had lime or mint, too. Experiment!

I like to drink un-sweetened iced tea (decaf of course) and add a splash of juice to it. My current favorite is cranberry juice.

I also like to add the True Lemon or True Lime to my water.

Perrier water with a squeeze of lime juice, then toss the sliced lime into it.

Juice mixed with carbonated water.

Cantaloupe, honeydew and rosemary in water! It's super refreshing!

As in just float chunks of it in the water, or should I mash it up first? I kinda hate cantaloupe, but I could be convinced to try it in this combo I think.
