Water Water ... Just There in the Bottle, Thanks

Help me carry my (big) water bottle in or on my backpack with no built-in holder and no clear places to latch onto.

Thanks to some AskMe recommendations, I switched by backpack to a Manhattan Portage Dakota
and I think it's great: a big central pocket for almost everything and a medium front pocket for my electronics. The only thing I can't find a place for is my water bottle: it's one of those giant, nalgene-style 32 ounce ones (about 4'' in diameter and 8'' tall). There's no real water bottle type sleeves on the side of the bag, and no hooks or anywhere to add on a carabiner or some other kind of attachment - I've never liked how hooked on water bottles jostle around when you walk anyway. I don't want to stick the bottle in the big pocket because it leaks - not a lot, but just enough that it could mess up a book or laptop.
Any clever ideas how I can carry this bottle in or on the bag?
