      If you've been recently diagnosed with diabetes you might be wondering: what on earth can I drink that tastes sweet? Or perhaps you're just watching your sugar intake to improve your health. Whatever your motivations, when you find yourself in the market for sugar free drinks you'll quickly see that the choices can be overwhelming at first. To offset that initial confusion here are a few quick tips to help save you some time, money and patience:

1. You probably have a good idea as what basic types of flavors you like, so start with one of those first. Pay attention to what type of sweetener is used in the particular brand and flavor of sugar free drink you decide on in case you don't care much for the taste of the sweetener used. Remember there is a growing number of sugar substitutes readily available on the market today, so if you don't like the flavor of a particular sweetener used in one brand's drink mix you can always try another brand that uses a different sweetener or combination of sweeteners in their products.

2. You also have the option of buying sugar free, unsweetened mixes if available (e.g. unsweetened Kool-Aid) and then sweetening them yourself with sucralose, saccharin, aspartame, acesulfame potassium, Stevia extract or another sweetener of your choice. If you already have a sweetener preference then this is a smart way to start.

3. Read some drink reviews. Once you've settled on a flavor and sweetener buy the smallest package possible to try it out. If you don't like it you might be able to return it, but if you can't return it at least you won't be out a significant amount of money.

4. If you're looking for something extra from your choice of sugar free drink besides just flavor, enhanced sugar free drink mixes and premixed drinks are available with vitamins, antioxidants, dietary fiber or even an extra blast of energy.

5. Lastly, don't forget about sugar free alcohol drink mixers and syrups for those special occasions, such as Baja Bob's cocktail mixers or Torani flavoring syrups and DaVinci flavoring syrups.

And there you have it. Hopefully these quick tips will be useful if you're new to the world of sugar free beverages.
