Brief Answer:
No harm under normal conditions

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome and thanks for your query.
I understand your concern but rest assured that no harm is done. If the person who drank it has diabetes there would be a sugar spike temporarily.
It would however be a good idea to keep such things out of reach of children, least they consume something dangerous unintentionally.
Wish you a good day.
