Darryl Robinson, former host of Drink Up on the Cooking Channel, was found dead in his Brooklyn apartment on Wednesday.
Also called DR Mixologist, Robinson, 50, was known for crafting specialty cocktails from around the world. He was discovered lying face down on his bed, fully clothed, after a concerned friend called police.
Authorities say the cause of death is still pending an autopsy, but there didn't appear to be any signs of forced entry or trauma.
"At learning of the sad news, our thoughts go out to Darryl's family & friends," says a Cooking Channel spokesperson.
His assistant Monique shared the news with his fans on Facebook, saying he was "full of light and charisma."
