    I pretty much only drink Orange juice --
    but it is WAY TOO concentrated for my taste.
    I HAVE TO dilute it w/ water.
    .
    For breakfast, I'll dilute it at least 25% with water.
    If I'm taking it out on the Golf course, for my morning
    round, I'll dilute it by 50% or more.
    Basically, I just want water w/ a little bit of flavor added.
    .
    I've been doing this for many years, now.....
    How 'bout you ?

    I don't drink fruit juices. Too much sugar, too caloric, not enough nutrition - I prefer to eat fruit and drink water (and no, I have no desire to buy a juicer:rolleyes2:)

    Maybe once a year I'll buy a bottle of cranberry juice, and then I usually drink with half seltzer.

    I hate orange juice. Ick.

    I dilute my juices with water about half and half. I also feel it's too concentrated for me.

    Only time I won't dilute orange juice is when there's vodka in it.:beer:

    If I'm not feeling good and solids aren't happening, I stick with straight juice or Gatorade. I really like juice, any kind of juice. I drink (low sodium) V8 if I'm not getting close to my 5+ veg servings a day. Fruit juice has too many calories for me to justify drinking it regularly though. I either dilute it with water, half and half. One of my fav cocktails is diet 7-up or Sprite with pineapple juice and Malibu rum. I make it with a bit more than a splash of pineapple juice.

    I wonder how it would taste diluted with coconut water.

    I'm with Hoya on this. Although Cran-raspberry diluted with Champagne makes a nice Mimosa ;)

    Drinking undiluted fruit juice of any type is not good for you. Ideally it should be diluted 50% to 75% with water.

    Undiluted juice is far too strong for the average kidney to cope with long term. Water is best. If you don't like plain water, add a little juice to taste.

    WATER

    I hate drinking water so I add some juice or soda to it for flavor and to cut down on the calories and I get to drink the water my body needs.
