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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
