Hock Cobbler

1 tea-spoon sugar

2 wine-glass Hock

Ingredient: Hock

Also Known As:  Hochheim, Hockheimer What it is:  Wine

German wine, sometimes wine from the Rhine regions and sometimes all German wine. It is short for the now obsolete word hockamore, a corruption of the name of the German town of Hochheim. The term seems to have been in use in the 17th century, initially for wines from middle Rhine, but in the 18th century became used as a term for any German wine sold in Britain. It seems probable that Queen Victoria's visit to Hochheim and its vineyards during harvest time in 1850 has contributed to the continued use of the term hock.

This drink is made the same way as the Catawba cobbler, using Hock wine instead of Catawba.
