Have you tried giving her diluted fruit juice? My son is also not a water drinker i give him fruit tea without sugar or diluted fruit juice.And he also drinks sirup,i just put a small drop into the water you can barely taste the sirup but he will drink it. Try see if she like diluted fruit juice or tea,if you like you can make the tea slightly sweet with a drop of honey.Good luck
