About Daab Sharbat: History And Origin Of The Iconic Drink From Kolkata:

Kolkata never fails to surprise us with its variety of delicacies. Every nook and corner of the city has something unique to offer – daab sharbat being one on the list. ‘Daab’ or tender coconut has been a part of our diet since time immemorial. Coconut water is healthy and hydrating and makes for a perfect drink to include in your diet year-round.

Taking the goodness of coconut water a notch higher, a sharbat stall, named Paramount, introduced daab sharbat years ago for the people of Kolkata. For the unversed, Paramount, founded in 1918, has been selling just sharbat for more than a century now – daab sharbat being the most popular drink on their menu. According to multiple reports, the owners of Paramount state that the recipe of the drink was given to the founder by eminent Indian chemist and educator Acharya Prafulla Chandra Roy. He encouraged the founder of Paramount – Nihar Ranjan Majumdar – to sell this concoction at a pocket-friendly price.

Since then, there was no looking back. Daab sharbat became a popular choice for all in the city. So much so that restaurateurs today replicate the concoction at their hotels to meet the demand of the customers. Some people even go creative with the recipe, adding their unique touch to it.
