A message on the Cooking Channel's website mourns the loss of host Darryl Robinson.

The former host of a Cooking Channel cocktail show was discovered dead in his Bedford-Stuyvesant apartment, police told the New York Post.

Mixologist Darryl Robinson, 50, of “Drink Up,” was found on the second floor of his Greene Avenue apartment, near Bedford Avenue around 12:30 a.m. after a concerned friend reached out to police, the sources told The Post.

He was found laying face down on his bed, a source said. He was fully clothed.

Robinson posted his last cocktail creation, the "Smoking Super Bowl" to his website on Feb. 1.

“Upon learning of this morning’s sad news, our thoughts go out to Darryl’s family & friends,” a spokesperson from the Cooking Channel said.

Family and friends told investigators he was prone to black-outs but the cause of death has not yet been determined.
