Is there a name for the class of cocktails where all ingredients are in equal proportions? For example, if I were to make a menu of things like a Corpse Reviver, Paper Plane, Last Word, etc. I'd like to title the menu with that term. I think "Perfect Cocktail" is fitting but I know that's for equal parts sweet and dry vermouth.
Is there a term for a cocktail made of equal proportions of its ingredients?
There seems to be no known terminology for a cocktail made with equal proportions of ingredients!
However that can not stop one from coining such a phrase. I would suggest something like an ”Equal portioned cocktails!”
Do not call it an Equalizer because that is already a valid cocktail.
If you make a cocktail of four equal portioned ingredients you could call it a 4 by 4 cocktail!
Take the pound cake as an example, called in French a ”quatre-quart” (four-quarter).
The pound cake is aptly named. Historically, the total ingredients are equivalent to one pound. In French, it is called "quatre-quart" because it consists of four ingredients of equal weight: one quarter of flour, one quarter of butter, one quarter of sugar and one quarter of eggs. It is an old recipe that gives a slightly dense cake, ideal for tea and trifles. You could even add grated lemon or orange zest. - Pound Cake
