Sugary liquids are not good choices for diabetics.

In brief: Depends
depends if the diabetic likes caffeine, phosphoric acid and all the artificial sweeteners.
The caffeine could upset the stomach and worsen reflux in a adult onset overweight diabetic. You would be better off with water infused with fresh ginger, or a leaf of mint. Healthier than the processed stuff.
