I was on a Royal Caribbean cruise in late December and spent some time (!) in the Champagne Bar where I was introduced to a superb drink called a Shanghai Smash. I THINK it had equal parts single malt scotch and orange liquor (possibly Cointreau) along with a squeezed lemon wedge and a muddled mint leaf. Can anyone confirm this or correct me?
