Diet sodas - recommendations?

A friend was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes this spring, so while we've been managing ok, I'd like to pick up a six pack for her or at least make some recommendations of diet soda other than Diet Coke that does not suck.

Her favourites before the diagnosis were San Pellegrino Limonata and any variety of ginger ale, so these are the ideal flavour profiles, but really, any recommendations on anything would probably be helpful to a subset of readers.

We're both in Maryland - she has access to the usual national brands; I've got a few more options what with a nearby Whole Foods, Target, and can probably access some specialty varieties in various places as I'm in the DC suburbs. (She's on the Eastern Shore.)
