In their earliest versions, Cobblers and Fixes were wine-based drinks shaken with ice. Over time, they have come to include any number of spirits and mixers served over crushed or cracked ice. The only real distinction is that a Cobbler is 12 ounces, and a Fix, which appeared later in the 20th century, is 8 ounces.
