A celebrated mixologist who once hosted a Cooking Channel show was found dead early Wednesday morning in his Brooklyn apartment.

Police say 50-year-old Darryl Robinson was discovered in his Bedford-Stuyvesant home just before 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Robinson is known for charting the history of cocktails during a single season of, "Drink Up" in 2010, a show still in reruns.

His Cooking Channel bio says that Robinson came to New York to pursue an acting career and wound up tending bar at the Hudson Hotel.

He made other television appearances as well.

Police noted no signs of forced entry or trauma, and the medical examiner will later determine the cause of death.

The Cooking Channel released a statement, saying, "Upon learning of this morning's sad news, our thoughts go out to Darryl's family and friends." ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
