I want to stop drinking Coke and other syrupy sodas. Anybody have easy ideas for soda-replacements?

I guess I'm thinking of something like 7up and a kind of fruit juice, but with something not as syrupy or artificially-tasting as 7up. A little sweet, but not as crazily sweet as most U.S.-based sodas.
Any recommendations for good, soda-like combinations? (e.g., ginger-ale + ????, seltzer + ????) I think I tried seltzer once and it was...unappealing. Or maybe it was mineral water...I can't remember.
Key issue: its mostly the over-the-top sugaryness that I don't like. Something semi-sweet and fizzy is ideal.
I've tried cutting my fruit juice with water as a substitute, but it was kind of...underwhelming.
Another caveat: I don't really want to go get a CO2 tank as suggested by a DIY site, for example. The easier this is to make, the better.
