What's the best way to transition from a bottle to a cup?

I am having one heck of a time getting my son to give up the bottle for a sippy cup. I have tried the cup that has the nipple and can convert to a sippy nipple. I have tried the hard plastic cup with the plastic lid(it has the plastic diverter to change flow). I have tried the beginner sippy that's approved for 4 months and up. I have tried the sippy cup without handles and just the regular sippy mouthpiece. At this point, I am in desperate need of some advice to help this conversion as my son is almost 11 months old and about to eat solid foods. It's time to say bye bye to the bottle!

I like the "cold turkey" method. Get rid of all the bottles in the house and replace them all w/sippy cups. I know every child is different, but I did that w/both my kids and after 2 days they were over it lol
