You could drink any soft drink as long as the sodium contents are low, speaking to a doc for reconfirmation would be a good idea.

Salt (Sodium) is generally contraindicated with ACE inhibitors. ACE stands for angiotensin-converting enzyme. The medication helps block this enzyme, which is normally part of a reaction in the body that causes the blood vessels to narrow (constrict). By blocking this enzyme, it causes blood vessels to relax, which can lower blood pressure.

Take care, best wishes!
