Should I try sippy cup or straw with my 6 month old? What kind?

My 6 month old son refuses to take a bottle. He took a bottle and formula occasionally up until about a month and a half ago and then completely stopped. I would like to try to introduce either a straw or a sippy and wonder what has worked best for other people? He will take a pacifier, already has 8 teeth, and is extremely intrigued by my water bottle with a straw ( so maybe the straw is the way to go?)!

Also, what type of cup has worked? Thanks

If he's intrigued with the straw I'd go ahead and give that a try. I have always used the take and toss kind of cups (only not toss them) since they are cheap.
