शराब comes from the Arabic word شَرَاب‎ (šarāb). Interestingly, the English word alcohol is also from Arabic: possibly from, اَلْكُحْل‎ (al-kuḥl) In English we have the related words Sherbet and Sorbet, which are not normally alcoholic!

Apart from sharab, another word used by local speakers is daruu.

Hindi also has sharbat/शरबत, which refers to nonalcoholic fruit drinks I believe.
