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.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
