Is 'sind ohne Wasser' more idiomatic than 'haben kein Wasser'`?

sind ohne Wasser is just as idiotic [sic!] as haben kein Wasser. I don't think either sentence makes any sense.

Would : "These cups are empty" work? or is the mentioning of "water" important?

Not really, they could contain wine or anything else, strange phrases, yes... but still you shouldn't add a different meaning :)
