Cocchi Cobbler

Cocchi Cobbler cocktail with Cocchi ROsa, vodka, passion fruit puree, simple syrup, and lime juice

The Cocchi Cobbler, from Darwin Manahan at Cliff’s Edge in Los Angeles, is a fruity, lush, easy-drinking cocktail that smells as good as it tastes.

Every cobbler needs a crown of fresh fruit on top, but Manahan takes it to the next level in his version. He uses his citrus squeezer to compress crushed ice into a little bowl, fills it with berries and mint and flowers, and sets it atop the drink. You needn’t go to all that trouble – but if you do, you’ll be rewarded with a drink that’s nearly as lovely to look at as it is to sip.

Manahan calls for Cocchi Rosa, a beautiful pink rosé wine apéritif. We’ve also tried it with deep-ruby Lillet Rouge, a red wine apéritif, and it’s just as delicious. We suspect it would also be lovely with a white wine apéritif like Cocchi Americano or Lillet Blanc.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
